Been a Long Time

It has been a very long time since I have written anything and today it is bitter sweet news I have to share. It is time for me to retire and put this organization to bed and the timing for this has recently been accelerated.

Due to an unforeseen problem our domain name has been lost to a foreign bad actor. The Ne-Do-Ba website no longer exists online. I apologize to anyone looking for Ne-Do-Ba and ending up who-knows-where, but I just don’t have the energy or financing to do anything about it.

Our website has been online since May of 1997 and it is sad for me to think about it being gone. However, many of the reasons for the existence of this organization are no longer valid and this is a very good thing. In 1997 it was very hard to find factual historical, cultural, and genealogical information concerning the Wabanaki. So, Ne-Do-Ba began collecting and sharing through our website and outreach programs. Today most records are online for anyone to access. In the past few years I have seen a number of outstanding Wabanaki programs and presentations. Online resources for teachers abound. Museums are rebuilding their Wabanaki offerings. Wabanaki conservation methods are being taken seriously. The Wabanaki are being sought out and asked for their assistance with all of this. And the very best part in my opinion is that the Wabanaki Peoples of N’Dakina have finally been allowed a public voice and they are proving to be very capable of telling their own story. After all, it is their story and it is about time we let them tell it!

And so nedobak, I retire with the knowledge I am no longer needed – and that is a good thing!

For the die-hard friends of Ne-Do-Ba, I offer these options.

  • Many pages of our website can be found on the wayback machine
  • I am attempting to move important content to a new home at Permanent.org
  • https://www.permanent.org/p/archive/05u9-0000
  • I have the website stored on a thumb-drive and can share pages if you are looking for something specific.

Marleah & Kanistanaux

Today I have a very exciting news clipping to share with to my readers. I have finally located some Kanistanaux family members prior to the 1870 Census.
This just goes to show that patience, persistence, and constantly revisiting sites I have already searched eventually pays off. It only took me 2 years and a new newspaper search engine to find this!

Stockton Deeds – 1879 Purchase

This post is a bit more upbeat then my last. Today’s deed shows the Kanistanaux family was able to repurchase a portion of their original lot in Stockton.

Unfortunately, the images for these documents are huge so I will not be following my usual pattern of providing copies of the documents here with the post. The images are all found on the free familysearch website, so I will provide links directly to their images for anyone interested in seeing the actual documents.

I will not be following my usual pattern of providing copies of the documents here with the post. The images are all found on the free familysearch website, so I will provide links directly to their images for anyone interested in seeing the actual documents.

Stockton Deeds – 1874 Purchase

Today I am beginning a series of posts concerning land records that have been located for the Kanistanaux family in Stockton and nearby.

I would like to thank Cheryl Keisling for performing a tedious search through un-indexed county records to locate these useful documents.

Unfortunately, the images for these documents are huge so I will not be following my usual pattern of providing copies of the documents here with the post. The images are all found on the free familysearch website, so I will provide links directly to their images for anyone interested in seeing the actual documents.

Indians in Paris – Index

This post contains all the links to the various posts I have written concerning Native American People participating in the 1867 Universal Exposition held in Paris, France.

Readers of this series might also be interested in learning more about U-ta-wa-un and the two Native American women known to have traveled with him.

1867 American Circus – Dress Rehearsal

Today’s post has nothing to do with genealogy, but the illustrations were uncovered as part of my Indians in Paris research.
I decided these circus illustrations are historically important and should be available to the public. Since this blog is public what better place to offer them. I hope my readers enjoy this short side trip.

U-ta-wa-un – Illustrated

Well, this may be the last of the Indians in Paris series, but then again it may not. Let’s see what the future brings.
Today I am sharing a number of cartoons found in the New York and Paris media in 1867 which may be directed at my good friend U-ta-wa-un. The humor of the times is often foreign to me. I don’t understand everything, but perhaps some of my readers will. In any case, it is interesting to find these items and fun to share them.
