Goodness, all the Arcands I know are of Native blood. I for one. These include the Arcands from Quebec. The contribution of European ancestry was quite scarce. In our family the connection to the Arcands in Quebec started with Joseph Benjamin Arcand born Aug 12, 1729 in Portneuf, Quebec, Canada. There were prior voyagers a generation earlier that contributed to other Arcands in the west and others from the same family, but Joseph is our line. The line to the Saskatchewan Arcands.
