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 9

The Ancestral Home is grateful to Hector Boudreau, his wife Jeanita (LeBlanc) and Francis LeBlanc of Moncton for the many hours they have spent taking photos of tombstones in area cemeteries to the benefit of researchers. 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 the Acadian Ancestral Home!
