Follow the dramatic history of Anne Marie's Amerindian-Acadian descendants in North America in two, ground-breaking books: Revisiting Anne Marie and Cajun By Any Other Name
Spanning two centuries, from the early 1600s to the mid-1700s, Revisiting Anne Marie engages the reader in the history of a Family cut from European and Amerindian (Mi'kmaq) cloth, from the family's brave beginnings in Nova Scotia to its exile in Snow Hill, Maryland, following the Grand Deportation of 1755.
The story of Anne Marie's family comes to life with art, source citations and references, first-hand observations and photographs, as the author interweaves the inter-relationships that comprise Anne Marie's extended family in l'Acadie with the history and politics of the time. Through an overlay of new genetic information, the author brings forth, generation by generation, the diverse society that becomes the foundation of our "American heritage."

Readers of Cajun By Any Other Name live the experience of Acadian ancestors whose lives were shattered by a forced expulsion from Nova Scotia in 1755 - from their exile in Maryland and re-emergence in the Louisiana parishes - and join a search for an identity nearly destroyed by re-tooled surnames, assumed pedigrees, ambition, courthouse filings and the Civil War.
In conclusion, Rundquist exposes how DNA testing, genealogy and history research restore vital connections for others of Native American and European ancestry, makes a case for self-identification that rises above cultural labels and strengthens the soul.

A reader remarks: "Hi Marie, I just started reading your book about our common ancestor Anne Marie. Thank you so much for doing all this research and publishing your story. When I was a child my grandfather used to tell us that we had Native American ancestors but we had no proof. Thanks to DNA testing and your research we can now say that we have Native American ancestors." -- John Reagan, USA, 10/12/2016
