European settlement and exploration of North America is quite an interesting topic and the French were of course very prominent in this. Many if not most of the old French Canadian/Quebecois and Acadian founder lineages are included in these projects.

Thanks J Man. Interestingly several Normand men are I-M253.

No problem...Yes for sure there are quite a few I-M253 results. There are also more J2 results than I expected as well. The early pioneer families such as Côté, Ouellette, Dugas ,Michaud, and Dube among others all seem to be J2.

I have an Acadian DNA cousin at 23andMe, with a French last name, with the Native American y-DNA of C-Z30538. Autosomally he's 4.5% Native American, the rest being European; he has a decent amount of Spanish/Portuguese so barring a recent ancestor from there this may be the result of southwest French/Basque ancestry.

I noticed that there a lot of Doucettes that are C.
