Just wondering if any researchers came across any reference in the public access parish registers, civil registration vital statistics, censuses, business directories or other sources to Mountaineer (Montagnais-Naskapi) Indians residing (ca. 1830-60) at either Quirpon-Cape Norman, or Conche, GNP?

Pikeman,
Perhaps you are already aware, but Charles Martijn wrote a paper on Innu presence on the Northern Peninsula a few years back - re - https://www.google.ca/search?dcr=0&ei=T ... e08GDi7pTs
That's about all I can offer at present; but I'll check a little further. As I recall, some of the Catholic registers for that area of the GNP ended up in the Hudson's Bay/Ungava Diocese.
Cheers
Greg Mitchell

Thank you once again for your reply and input. Yes, I am proud to say that I have read the article by Charles Martijn, and I was blessed to have had the opportunity of corresponding with him through extensive e-mailing on the topic of Innu (Montagnais) in the GNP and the Piper's Hole watershed areas-like yourself he is a top notch researcher....so true. Huhhh, I did not know that some of the RC parish records from the GNP were forwarded to the Ungava Bay district-hmmm very interesting indeed. This is worthy of a future, follow-up research project-a very informative and well appreciated lead to say the least. Ps. I am presently working on a detailed research article on Innu (Montagnais) in Newfoundland, and any additional information outside of the Martijn PAC (Papers of the Algonquian Conference) article will augment the paucity of research findings on the low-level or trace residue impact or footprint that nomadic Innu(at) bands left here in NL through a recorded ethnohistoric presence and/or genetic imprint through intermarriage w/ local Mc-Mont kin groups. As an endnote, the only reference that I ever came across in the public archives for a documented "Mountaineer Indian" (sic.) as an ethnic identifier comes from the BOI-BSG Civil Registration Vital Statistics Return of Deaths at the turn of the 19 th. century for a Christopher Michel (Mountaineer Indian) listed in the remark or note section-but please note that the NGB Vital Stats Return of Deaths does not include that remark. But it is definitely there...I will keep you posted in the near future if and/or when anything comes up.
