Acadian Roots

According to Bona Arsenault and Geneviève Massignon, most of the ancestors of Acadian families had already arrived before the beginning of the 18th century.

The Centre Acadien invites you to get acquainted with the first arrivals of the families cited below as well as the heraldry of these families. As far as is possible, we supply some information regarding some members of these families who were deported, where they were deported to and even in some cases the names of ships that either took them into exile or brought them back. Finally, it will certainly be of interest to many to see the different spelling variations of several of these family names.

The Centre Acadien of Université Sainte-Anne located in Church Point Nova Scotia is an ideal facility for those who are interested in genealogy. Numerous individuals visit the Centre to request a genealogical search about their ancestors. The Centre Acadien also offers the possibility of doing one's own research.
