As one will see and review, these beginning 8 Vermont Vital Record Cards, show these St. Francis ancestors of Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont to have been identified as WHITE. Nowhere is there an indication of them being identified at birth as being "Indian", La Sauvage", "Abenaki" or "Colored" etc. At least, not on these Public Vermont Vital records....I am simply showing that on the majority, if not all, of these recorded vital records, these persons were identified or identifying as "white." This is not to imply that they were "white," yet taken as a whole...for a large span of time, from 1909 forward...this "St. Francis" even though they do have "Native" ancestors in the 1600's (Huron, Mikmaq, and Acadian), the family for the previous 100+ years were identified and or identifying as "white." Of course, the excuse has been said time and time again, the families "were hiding in plain sight" "discrimination" and if that doesn't elicit a tear of sympathy, then what is heard is "Eugenics Eugenics Eugenics." Naturally, researching one family will genealogical involve the mentioning of the Phillips, the Lampman's, the Gardner's and many other families that inter-related with the "St. Francis" family. One's ethnicity can be in error on a Vital Record, true, but over a multitude of generations in the same family? One will have to figure out an answer to that, for themselves.
In 8 document postings each, I will, in parts 1 through however-many-it-takes, show and provide the vital records per the Vermont Vital Records Dept. obtained through PUBLIC RECORDS, exactly what I have found out genealogically.
The "Semme dit Siroux dit St. François/ St. Francis" Family Ancestry was worked on genealogically by my person, Douglas Lloyd Buchholz of Lancaster, Coos County, New Hampshire; as well as Lynn (nee: Menard) Mathison of Griswold, New London County, Connecticut; and including Suzette LeClair of Rawdon, Quebec, Canada.
CLARIFICATION: Suzette LeClair worked on these genealogies without ANY AWARENESS that I had started it...retrospectively nor did Lynn inform Suzette LeClair of the origin of the genealogical FTM Gedcom files for neither Nancy Lee (nee: Millette) Doucet's ancestors nor that of April Ann (nee: St. Francis) Merrill's ancestors either.
Numerous OTHER genealogical records will be shown and provided on this blog as time allows, on the various other parties/person(s) from inside and outside of Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont on these alleged and reinvented "Abenakis."
BTW, Karen Majka a.k.a. Karen Mica and that bunch over on her blog "Abenaki For Justice", such as so-called genealogist Paul Bunnell, can plagarise from a number of works, and lift from "this or that" all they want to. Karen Majka merely mentioning names and saying, "I have the Abenaki lineages from "Pentagoet" region and several others from the coastal area including Port Royal. I also have a linage from both the Huron and Montagnais, I have an Uncle who married the Shoshone woman who led the Louis and Clark Exposition to the West Coast, and I am presently working out a "possible" Turtle Mountain Sioux connection as well, but this one is simply for my own information "if" it is there. And of course there is French. Both Acadian and Canadian and there is a strong Cajun affiliation as well. There could have been a Mi`kmaq but I don`t think so, at this time. Yes, of course I know about Gill, there was another one, St. Castine though not a captive, he was associated with the des Amérindiens Armouchiquois de Pentagoet. "A census of Acadie, taken in 1673, enumerates thirty-one white persons, including soldiers, who were connected, with St.Castin’s establishment at [ Pentagoet ]. He had formed a close alliance with the savages, by marrying the daughter of Madockawando, their chief. The Abenakis & Metis of Acadia were given land across St. Francis du Lac near Sorel and Nicolet, in Odanak to avoid English harassment. . ." doesn't mean anthing.
Read the MYTH OF THE VERMONT ABENAKI.....
One can say one descends from anyone, but if the genealogical pieces are not provided to show that descent, from that ancestor to the descendant, then words means NOTHING.
This whole "song and dance" of Karen Mica a.k.a. Karen Majka and Co., in that they say, "we will show the genealogical connectedness to the Abenaki ancestors.....to the appropriate recognizing authorities, at the appropriate place and at the appropriate time" (later) is a cop-out!
The Definition of "cop out": to fail to assume responsibility/ duty or to commit oneself; or a person who acts in this way.

On March 19, 2010 3:00 PM Karen Mica said, "Ok Douglas Buchholz , I`m going to let you post here, as long as you keep the personal attacks down to a minimum. We are only trying to do the same thing your doing on your blog, even though some folks apparently think we`re working together or are on the same side of the argument! We also want the truth to come out, and your blog has helped enormously to do just that, even though "helping anyone" apparently was never your intention! So, post here if you want to but be reasonable about it is all I ask."
Karen Mica continues....
"By the way Doug, one does not have to be from Vermont to have Abenaki blood, or Huron or Montagnais, or any other, and many of us have those too, but we DO distinguish those from the Abenakis. Some others don`t bother with the "small details" such as that though."
Truth? I do not think after having read the blog content, that such is the reality. Heck, they can't even "stand up" and put out there that "Queen Bee" is actually Nancy Lee (nee: Millette) Cruger-Lyons-Doucet. IF ONE IS GOING TO ADDRESS SOMEONE, THEN ADDRESS THEM BY THEIR NAME(S). ONE DOES NOT PICK UP A WEAPON AND NOT USE IT FOR THE PURPOSE IN WHICH IT WAS MADE FOR. ONE PICKS UP A SWORD, ONE CUTS WITH THE SWORD. ONE PICKS UP A ROPE, ONE TIES UP SOMEONE OR SOMETHING WITH THAT ROPE. ONE PICKS UP A PEN AND PAPER TO ADDRESS SOMEONE WITH THE TRUTH, THEN ONE WRITES THAT ADDRESSED PERSON'S NAME, BY USING THEIR FACTUAL NAME.
TO DO OTHERWISE, IS HALF ASSED, COWARDLY and CHICKEN SHIT B.S. !! THE INTENT OF KAREN MICA and HER BLOG "ABENAKI FOR JUSTICE," IS SUSPECT, IN ITS INTENT AND PURPOSE.
As my mother used to say, shit or get off the pot.

But, this offer was blown off for some kind of ridiculous PC New Age Fraud reason by the so called State of VT and a New Age Democrat who Douglas, has already done fair and good justice too. Bravo! Douglas. That hit so hard it hurt me here. True is True and that was true!
As far as, New Age fraud reasons to keep this "Abenaki myth" alive, Douglas Buchholz's most recent Blog hit home so hard on Hinda Miller, it hurt me all the way down here, OUCH and yikes,creepy. That is a nasty fake Cherokee, plastic Shaman. I cant't believe one of the elected skunks is realy that totally stupid. America is a really great place, ain;t it? I got no more to say on that one. Douglas hit a center filed homer. Bye bye ball!! Lookout planet X, in coming! Wow!is all I have to say on that freak story.
Why don't the people at large see what a hoax is being brought on VT? Douglas got this one right on the money shot. Pain? Yes, I can stil feel it. Ouch, not native, scary, creepy and occult. And that BS is passing for native?

I am still curious about all the "real" Abenaki who are too silent to be known or heard from. May we see a list of names? It would be nice to know who you and who Douglas Buchholz alledgedly represent. And didn't BOTH blogs state that there were no HIDDEN Abenaki just pretenders? Yet each of you says that you represent the hidden People. It would be nice to know just who is being represented and if they know that they are or that these opinions actually represent their feelings.
" May we see a list of names? It would be nice to know who you and who Douglas Buchholz alledgedly represent. And didn't BOTH blogs state that there were no HIDDEN Abenaki just pretenders?"
MY RESPONSE:FIRST, No one has communicated/or consulted my person regarding this blog "Abenaki For Justice" and the usage of any part, portion, or section on this blog, "The Reinvention of the Vermont and New Hampshire Abenaki" whatsoever. They have not gained my permission (not that they need it) or such to infer or imply that I have, in any way shape or form, associated myself with anything to do with this "group" (Paul Bunnell, Karen Mica, Brian Chenevert, Dr. Raymond Lussier, etc) or anyone else associating themselves to Karen Mica's blog.
SECONDLY, I have NEVER EVER implied or inferred that I "represent" any one person, or group of persons, Abenaki or otherwise. I have simply stated that there are legitimately documented (genealogically, historically and socially) Abenakis and descendants thereof having resided historically and are residing within Vermont and New Hamsphire, who are NOT being addressed by these Incorporate "Groups" led by these so-called "Chief's" nor by the State of Vermont/State of New Hampshire.
I know alot of Abenaki descendants in the area of Coos County, New Hampshire and elsewhere and they are not on "a list" nor have they known about HB1610 here in New Hampshire nor S.222 over there in Vermont, etc. Absolutely NOT, will these Abenaki descendants associate with these various "incorporated Abenaki groups."
FOR OBVIOUS REASON(S)
On March 21, 2010 4:32 PM Jeanne Morningstar Kent said, "I appreciate Alice's statement regarding working Abenaki not being in for the $$$$. I fall into that category as well. What does concern me, though, is that while I do not know your situation, I do know some about Douglas Buchholz's and it is irritating to know that someone who is supported by state or Federal services is using that money we pay in taxes, to purchase documents and utilize his free time to attack the very same people who contribute to his ability to do this. Am I the only one to see something wrong with this?"
Jeanne Kent can be "irritated" all she wants to be, regarding my person, and/or how I am alleged using monetary funding for this alleged "Abenaki Attack." This is yet another delusional distortion she chooses to believe is the reality. Just like when she retrospectively attempted (on Abenaki Pride: Setting the Record Straight blog) to imply, that "I was working for Paul Wilson Pouliot, Odanak, the Federal Government and/or the State of Vermont, etc." Jeanne Kent obviously does NOT know the source of my monetary funding in regards to obtaining any of these record documentations. Apparently she does not comprehend that these record documentations were and are being recieved from various Abenaki descendants throughout N'dakinna, through the PUBLIC RECORDS of various departments, including State and Federal agencies, etc. Some of these documents are ORIGINAL RECORDS of various Incorporation "events." As such, the possession of them by me, has not cost me or anyone else, one damned red cent! The TRUTH does not honestly cost anyone anything if one is honest.
On March 21, 2010 5:25 PM Karen Mica said, "Douglas Buchholz is not attacking anyone here, and no here needs to attack him either. These kind of comments are unnecessary, need not be made and they won`t be posted here again."
Well, obviously some cowardly person hiding behind "Anonymous," saying that "Salmon" meaning me, Douglas Lloyd Buchholz is a lone, nutcase with a vendetta" as shown below, was posted on Karen Mica's blog. Apparently, I am not an alleged nutcase, alone any more, with an alleged vendetta against the Abenaki People, eh?!
On March 21, 2010 5:29 PM Anonymous said..."Karen Mica, you are wrong. You know nothing of Abenaki history or geography. Why don't you just shut up? You've put yourself in the same category as Salmon (Douglas Lloyd Buchholz)...a lone nutcase with a vendetta. Perhaps it's time to broadcast the skeletons in your closet, eh.
On March 24, 2010 12:48 PM Karen Mica said, "Then Douglas Buchholz's blog came along.
And though we have nothing to do with that, we found it very helpful in a lot of ways!
IF this blog "The Reinvention of the Vermont and New Hampshire Abenaki actually helps someone, then good....the intention of this blog has always been to "address" the parties/person(s), dynamic(s), and historical record(s) for what they have been, regarding the alleged and reinvented Abenaki of Vermont and New Hampshire, whether good, bad, or ugly. TRUTH is TRUTH.
I also think, that by allowing people to post on the blog "Abenaki For Justice" (created by Karen Majka/Mica) as "Anonymous" commentators, is just plain stupid, idiotic and cowardly of these "cloaked" or "hidden" persons who have been commenting on that blog. People need to "stand up" for what they say, and stand by what they have said, in the past or in the present. Referencing someone in one's writing, "as if beating around the bush" is also cowardly as well.
BTW, I do notice that no one is "addressing" on Karen Mica's blog, regarding Howard Franklin Knight, Jr, and these other "Chiefs," like Brian Chenevert, Paul Bunnell, Eric Floyd, Charlie True Jr., Ralph Swett, and so on. WHY NOT?! Is Karen Mica's blog "biased"? Talk is cheap. That is all that goes on, on Karen Mica's blog. TALK TALK TALK yet no foundation and NO substantiation documentarily as to their claims and proclamations of this or that.
Well, back to the Semme dit Siroux dit St. François/ St. Francis Vital Record Cards etc. and genealogical historical records of Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont......
