This site - The Acadian material is mainly pre-exile and it includes Louisiana Acadian material.

The site is concentrated on Acadian material - pre and post deportation, but there are a few things on Louisiana Acadians.

was an early presence online with Acadian genealogy. His site has become quite commercial, but there is still a lot of content there.

the Acadian story. It is done by the Centre Acadien, Université
Sainte-Anne, Church Point, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Denis Beauregard is another major Acadian
site. While there are links, there is also a great amount of information
on Acadians and the French settlers of Quebec.
- CyberAcadie (Robichaud) French only
This is a very informative
site on the Acadian culture through the years. Main pages are Acadian History/Chronology, Biographies, The Acadians, and Books.
Linda Jones also has a short page of Acadian
History. It is a summary of Arsenault's work, and it covers the beginning
of Acadia ... to about 1671. Though it hasn't been updated since 1998, it will often come up in search engines because it has been online since 1996.
A short Acadian history is posted by the Clare
Beverage company. It includes an explanation of the Acadian flag elements.
- The Acadians (CBC)
- Patrimoine Acadienne (French only)
This is a type of blog website on Acadian material.
- Early Canadiana Online
Excellent resource with over 3000 publications
online. Pages of old books were scanned and GIF images of the full
books are online. There's a ton of material on Canada; some I have
found with Acadian content are:
