Speculation on origins of Radegonde Lambert [29 August 2012]
In an attempt to make sense of the Person page for Radegonde Lambert, undocumented items which appear to be rumor or speculation are moved here to talk. Please provide an authoritative source for your postings on the person page and definitely share new information as it becomes available. The talk page is a suitable place to discuss possibilities and everyone is welcome to do so. Creating and testing a hypothesis is a valid technique. But the hypothesis should have some factual beginnings and be logically derived.--Judy (jlanoux) 12:26, 18 July 2009 (EDT)
[No evidence is presented that Radegonde is the daughter of Jean Lambert. The following information is more appropriate for [[Person:Jean Lambert (4)| his page. --Judy (jlanoux) 10:44, 18 July 2009 (EDT)]
Possible parents---JEAN LAMBERT and Un-identified MicMac Indian.
The Indians honored de La Tour and he married the daughter of one of their Chiefs. Because there were no French girls his men also settled with Indian women. Among the men who did this were Jean Lambert and a man called Lejeune. In subsequent years there were a good number of Metis living in this area with the names of Lambert and Lejeune.
Jean Lambert, born in France about 1595, probably came to Acadia on the Jonas out of the port of Dieppe, Normandy. It left 25 February 1610 and arrived in Port Royal at the end of May. They had a long stormy crossing. They ate all of their normal rations and some of the food meant for the colony. Jean Lambert remained in North America, for the rest of his life. This makes him the earliest permanent settler of our European ancestors.
Jean Lambert's sons remained with the Micmacs. His possible, daughter Radegonde Lambert, probably born in 1628 or 1629 at Cap-de-Sable, married a French colonist, Jean Blanchard.

Marie Anne Guillot has the following for Radegonde Lambert: [citing any authority?(EDT)]
1. "Father: Jehan Lambert Mother: MicMac Indian Woman"
2. "* ID: I0543
Marriage 1 MicMac Indian Woman Children 1. [Has Children] Radegonde Joy Lambert b: 1615 in La Chausse, OldPoitou, France"
3. "* ID: I0544
Marriage 1 Jehan Lambert Children 1. [Has Children] Radegonde Joy Lambert b: 1615 in La Chausse, Old Poitou, France"
But Philippe LAMBERT, born 1682, in Arsenault p. 1008 (Beaubassin), might be a relative.
I believe that the results of the "Mothers of Acadia" DNA project (http://www.familytreedna.com/public/mothersofacadia/default.aspx?section=mtresults) have been interpreted to demonstrate that Radegonde Lambert's ancestry was not of Native American origin.--Rtengel 18:01, 14 September 2011 (EDT)
Many websites indicate that DNA has proven Radegonde Lambert's mother was NOT native. The problem with using DNA to determine ancestry is that it cannot tell the whole truth! Radegonde Lambert's mother can still be considered Mi’kmaq! Please go to the following link where I have discussed genealogical use of DNA using Radegonde Lambert as an example.

Re: DNA did NOT prove that Radegande Lambert's mother was European. To explore this more completely, this site is not appropriate. Since the link did not appear on my first submission please Google Metis Discussions blog or http://newfrancemetis.blogspot.ca/ can also get you there directly.--Rjb08 12:55, 29 August 2012 (EDT)
Proposed parents [18 July 2009]
A number of family pages were created from gedcom imports based on the above speculative content. They have been removed as parent links to avoid confusing those unfamiliar with the situation. Possible parents can be discussed here.--Judy (jlanoux) 10:55, 18 July 2009 (EDT)
[Person:Jean Lambert (4)|Jean Lambert]
has been cited to show than Person:Huguette Lambelot (1) is a sibling of Radegonde Lambert.
It is significant that Stephen White lists both of these women with no mention of their parentage and no hint that the names Lambelot and Lambert are the same.--Judy (jlanoux) 14:29, 18 July 2009 (EDT)
