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.

Escuminac Stella Maris Catholic Cemetery

Escuminac Cemetery was once known at Stella Maris Catholic Cemetery

The Ancestral Home is grateful to Hector Boudreau and his wife Jeanita (LeBlanc) of Moncton for the many hours they have spent taken the photos of tombstones in area cemeteries. Thank you my good friends and cousins Hector and Jeanita for contributing to this web site!

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.
