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.

Notre-Dame du Calvaire Cemetery Chartersville, New Brunswick - Page 6

The Chartersville Cemetery contains 6,132 headstones. It has been quite a feat to photograph all of those.

Thank you my good friends and cousins Hector, Jeanita and Francis for contributing to Whispers Through The Willows!

If you minimize the browser containing the names
you will be able to work side by side with the cemetery page.

These are thumbnails - clicking on one will open a new window that will take you to the full sized photo. You are able to scroll through the tombstone photos even as the page is loading.
