TitleColumn: Acadians and French-Canadian Genealogy

Snippet: The Acadian & French-Canadian Ancestral Home website is celebrating its 17th anniversary. Since 1998, the site has grown to include extensive research material, including genealogies, historical documents, parish registers, research aids and related documents to help those descended from Acadian and French-Canadian ancestors, as well as those with Cajun and Franco-American ancestors.

The databases available include information on census records, ships’ lists, Acadian deportation, lists of exiles, prisoners’ lists, mtDNA and much more. The site is updated frequently, so if you haven’t visited for a while, it may be time for another look.

The menu in the left margin is the best way to browse the site. At the top of the list are links to Lucie’s Blogs, including Lucie’s Legacy, Ancestral Home, Whispers Through the Willows and Petits Enfants Souvenir d’un viellard (information and lyrics to a song passed down through the generations).

. . . To read more, pick up one of the above noted newspapers.
