The True Acadian Period: 1604-1755
As with any form of genealogy, there are certain basic records that we
use. The primary source of information comes from census and church
records. Notarial records may also include genealogical and background
data. Over the years, many others have used the available sources
and have compiled works to make it easier for us.
- Census Records: I
am working on putting ALL of the Acadian census data online
- Church Records: What
records are available and how can they be accessed
- Notarial Records:
Yes, you can find Acadian material in surviving notarial records
- Compiled Works: Someone
else has done a lot of the work for you
- Surnames: What names
are Acadian? Which ones were the earliest settlers?
NOTE: White's Dictionnaire will thoroughly cover the Acadian genealogy of this entire period.
Part 1, 1636-1714, has already been published.
