The Métis are generally considered the people descended from the aboriginal North American Indians and the later European trader-settlers. The term historically has referred to people also called half-breed, mongrel, Country-born, Mountain Men, or Sauvages (savages). (This information on Métis background material read at http://metis-history.info/metis.shtml).
The format of all five volumes is similar. There are a few individual detail reports on the primary progenitors of each book, followed by the genealogies of their descendants. Lots and lots of genealogies. With lots of information from facts that are well-documented using Canadian and United States sources. Each volume has an index of thousands of names. Five volumes have been published, and I believe there are to be six volumes in total.
First Métis Families of Quebec, Volume 1, Fifty-Six Families covers three generations of the descendants of the original fifty-six families.
