In 2004, Acadian descendants visited Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia. Our ancestors had been deported from their lands in 1755. Many of our ancestors who lived here were also buried here. Sitting near the old willows planted by our ancestors and reflecting on their lives, a cool breeze suddenly blew through the willows. At that moment we felt the spirit of our ancestors. This blog is dedicated to their memory.

Barachois, New Brunswick Cemetery - Part 3

Entrance to St-Henri Cemetery
Barachois, New Brunswick, Canada





















































































































My thanks to cousins Francis LeBlanc, Hector Boudreau and his wife Jeanita LeBlanc Boudreau of Moncton for the many hours spent taken photos of tombstones in New Brunswick area cemeteries and contributing to me to use as I wanted.

All of the St-Henri Cemetery headstone photos can be found on the Acadian Ancestral Home web site.

Leger, Caisse & Boudreau all in my tree. Saw a Lirette stone (photgraphed it) in Chelmsford yesterday. Thanks for sharing Lucie that's quite the collection!

Thanks for you post Michelle.

I have more than 60,000 photos particularly of New Brunswick Cemeteries where mostly Acadians lived.

If I was as astute as you are with it all, I would have the stones as slides ;)
