Descendants of White Bear and of Magnus Tait

About Our Family Research

My maternal ancestor James Tate, descendant of Magnus Tait emigrated from Scotland via Rupert's Land. His son William married Mary Bear and they were among the first inhabitants of the Red River Settlement which is now known as Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Mary Bear was daughter of Chief White Bear and an unknown Metisse.
I haven't had any luck going back further than White Bear because of oral tradition on the native side, and the refusal of the church to acknowledge inter-racial marriages, therefore there are no records.

I hope to develop my paternal family tree with the aid of this site.

Thanks in advance,

Beth Haarsma
