    !BIRTH-MARRIAGE-CHILDREN-CENSUS-DEATH: Stephen A. White, DICTIONNAIRE GENEALOGIQUE DES FAMILLES ACADIENNES; 1636-1714; Moncton, New Brunswick, Centre d'Etudes Acadiennes, 1999, 2 vols.; pp. 143 & 909; own copy.

    !BIRTH-FATHER-MARRIAGE: E-mail posting to newsgroup <ACADIAN-CAJUN-L@rootsweb.com> #153 on 6 Apr 1999 by Cara MIDDLEBROOK or Robert BIALKOWSKI (jackmid@altech.ab.ca). Radegonde was born in 1628 or 1629 at Cap-de-Sable, daughter of Jean LAMBERT (born in France about 1595) and a native woman. Jean probably came to Acadia on the "Jonas" out of Dieppe, Normandy, leaving 25 Feb 1610, arrived in Port Royal at the end of May. He remained in North America the rest of his life, so was the earliest permanent settler.
    [This version of Radegonde's birth is not likely, since her mtDNA shows her of European descent, not native Indian. She was likely born in France.]

    Radegonde's DNA

    Several descendants of Radegonde Lambert through all females have had their mitochondrial DNA tested. Mitochondrial DNA is passed from the mother to both genders of their children, but only females pass it on.
    In Radegonde's case, her DNA, for several years, also proved as puzzling as the records regarding her birth and mother's ethnicity. No one but Radegonde's descendants seems to match her DNA. It's like Radegonde wanted to play a joke on all of her descendants. And a fine job she did too!
    Fortunately, that question has now been resolved, and Radegonde's DNA, haplogroup X2b4, which is exceedingly rare \endash as in chicken's teeth rare \endash is found only in Europeans, to date, and not in any Native people.
    Haplogroup X2b4 was born sometime around 5,500 years ago, in Europe, and given that the Native people migrated to the Americas sometime between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago across the land bridge from Asia into what is now Alaska, it would be impossible for X2b4, born in Europe, to be found among the Micmac women in 1621-1629. There were no European women in Canada in the early 1600s, early enough to be considered Micmac and be bearing children with French men by 1621.

      Text: There's a bit of controversy about Radegonde Lambert-----especially surrounding Steven White's interpretation of her origins.
      For discussions about DNA etc see my blog: <http://newfrancemetis.blogspot.ca/>
      There he has a blog post dated 26 Aug 2012 entitled "Genealogist, Stephen A. White Wrong on Radegonde Lambert's Origin" which he concludes with "Radegonde Lambert is still, in my mind, historically Mi’kmaq!"
