Cajun By Any Other Name Recovering the Lost History of a Family and a People by Marie Rundquist, published March, 2012.
 
 
From Brooke Kenny's book review of Revisiting Anne Marie published in the Maryland Gazette!

"Marie Rundquist knows that genealogy is about much more than just the names and dates that fill in the blanks on a two-dimensional family tree.

"The Gaithersburg author believes where you come from and what your ancestors did are critical building blocks for self-esteem. Knowing what your ancestors did to survive not only makes your own struggles more livable, but also gives you an invigorated sense of purpose to carry on in life.

"Rundquist dug deep into her own family history to write "Revisiting Anne Marie: How an Amerindian Woman of Seventeenth-Century Nova Scotia and a DNA Match Redefine American Heritage," her book with surprising findings. She traced her family history back 12 generations to a woman named Anne Marie, who lived in Nova Scotia in the mid-1600s. The book details both the history of social and political strife in the area at the time and the contemporary use of DNA to trace ancestry..."
