LABAUVE & LABARRE SAME SURNAMES?


I'm interested in finding out what the origins of LaBauve DNA might reveal as to the origins of Louis Noel Labauve.

Was he a Mi'kmaq, was he European?.

One of the more common names in the early Mi'kmaq-Maliseet records is the name Labauve and it's many variations.

As Mario recently posted, the names LaBarre and LaBauve seem to be the same name as well.

One way to solve part of the mystery around the origins of this family, is to have a LaBauve male take a Y-Chromosome DNA test.

The Y-Chromosome DNA test can only be taken by a male and costs about $99 US.

Hi, Erich,
Louis Noel LaBauve was a European (from France) who immigrated to Acadia (Nova Scotia).....I will check for the date.

It's interesting that LaBarre and LaBauve migh be the same name. What do we know about the surname LaBarre's history?
Thanks,
Lynn
