Claim Your Ancestor #30: Blanc-ing Out

More than half of the students I've been working with have traced an ancestor to some part of Canada in the 18th or 19th centuries.

Students, I found that your 5th great-grandmother was born in New Brunswick to a French sounding family (notice her father's name - LeBlanc) and when she married into your family she turned her own maiden name into "White."    

Does she belong to you?

PS You are officially from Acadia
