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.

I am looking for a James Hannigan d. 1851 as well as his wife Susannah Hannigan, nee Crossman d. 1871. They are listed as being buried in IrishTown and I am wondering if you have a list of the names from the headstones. I was unable to read some of them so not sure if this is the cemetery that they are in. Appreciate any info or advice. Thanks!

Hi.. if you go to my web site there is a list of names. Stones going back to the 1850s and 1870s may not have survived the climate of the Maritimes. Good luck and thank you for posting. Here is the ink:
