Hello: I recently discovered that my grandmother (Rosalie Octavie Muise) may have been of Mi'kmaq ancestry. Her father's name was Jean Alfred Muise and her mother's name was Marie Julienne Muise. My great grandfather's father's name was Simon Marc Miuce and his mother's name was Rosalie Muise. My great grandmother's father's name was Romain Muise and his mother's name was Rosale Mouleson.
Jean Alfred Muise and Marie Julienne Muise (my great grandparents on my mother's side) were married 30 June 1890 (which also happens to be my birthday only I was born in 1959).
I would welcome hearing from anyone who may know about either the Muise family, or e Mi'kmaq connection. I am thrilled to think that I may have first nations connections in my ancestral past.
