I know that the Catholics were great records keepers even of the American Indians of New England and Quebec Canada etc. But what I don't know is if they kept Birth, Marriage and Death records of them Before 1800. My family is of Native American descent on my Father's side, and I have Not been able to find hide nor hair of their births in Maine (where they are from).So I am trying to go back even further to when my 4th grt. grandfather married a Passamaquoddy Indian lady with the last name of MITCHELL (Mitchel and other various spellings),to see if I can find anything there. So far no luck at all. There is rumor that perhaps her family came from Quebec or New Brunswick, CAN, but I have so very little to go on, I don't even know where to begin. Could anyone here suggest a place I might look? I live No Where near Maine or Quebec so cannot do the checking for myself unless there is something I can do via email or snail mail. Thank you for any suggestions or thoughts.
