Founding Mothers of Acadia mtDNA Project

 The following list was compiled by
Stephen A. White,  Genealogist
Centre d'études acadiennes, Université de Moncton, 
Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada
Updated 10 June 2010
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.

I'm not sure what all this means yet, but a number of my direct grandmothers on this list

Hi Mike,

The list of women pertains to the pioneer women who helped to found Acadia. Let me know if you have other questions.
