June 26 – 1:00 PM – Stream B – Mohawk Participant in the War of 1812

Summary 

It’s through censuses, parish registers and military archives that native participants of Quebec who took part in the militia were discovered.  

Outline 

Since the Mohawks communities are located in the province of Quebec, on Ontario as well as in the New York State, divisions to take part in such a crucial conflict brought various complexities as well as good relationships with the administrative entities of the Dominion. We will observe the archives which became important tools to develop a methodology in order to associate the community members who took part in the conflict for the freedom of Canada.
