The following list has been revised in order to incorporate into it the haplotypes that have been determined to date by mtDNA testing of descendants, as well as an indication of those women for whom it is known that there would be no female-line descendants living. In the following, the latter situation is marked with "nflp" for "no female-line posterity."

This list is not intended to be exhaustive, but has only been compiled to give a general idea of how small a number of women became forebears of the Acadian people, while at the same time showing for which of these women mtDNA test results either have been obtained to date, or may be hoped to be obtained in the future. Unfortunately, a dozen women on this list are believed to have no female-line posterity (nflp), so no such results may be expected for them.

MOST WANTED!!!

The Mothers of Acadia mtDNA Project is in need of test results for the following as we have none at this time:

Jeanne Aimee (No. 1), Louise Bartineau (No. 7), Perrine Basile (No. 8) Anne LaVache (No. 52), and Anne Ouestnorouest (No. 62). More results are needed going back to the following: Anne Bernon (No. 10), Jeanne Lejeune (No. 56), Catherine (No. 74), and Marie-Therese (No. 78).

Does your maternal line go back to one of the Mothers for whom an mtDNA test has not yet been done? If so and if you are interested in participating in the mtDNA Proven Origins project at the Acadian Ancestral Home, please contact me at LucieMC at acadian-home.org *change the at to @
