I was once told that my ancestors had some major interactions with both Nations. I do not know where to start? Please drop me a line if you can.

Thank You,Michael

My ancester is Hypolite Bresette (born aprox. 1790, Montreal). He was a voyager for the North West company and The Hudson's Bay Company and is a Drummand Island Militia member. He married a cree princess named Archange (the sparrow). But it is rumoured (and published) that he was half native. I can't find any information on his family (parents, etc.), but I am searching for some!
P.s. there are MANY different ways to spell this last name. No variation suprises me now. :)

My great-grandfather was Daniel Bressette; we think his father was named Charles or John. Daniel's children were named Charles, John, Daniel, Nora, Edith, David, Patrick, Harold, Frank (my late-Dad 1910-1993, Joseph and Josephine (twins). We are Objiwa/Chippewa/Pottowatomin natives, but of course, were are assuming French descent with a name like Bressette, plus living in southern Ontario (Kettle & Stoney Point First Nation), possible fur traders; definite hunters.
