The Memorial Church, Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia where so many of our Ancestors pioneered, lived and died. Many were deported from here in 1755.

Welcome - Bienvenue
at the entrance road to Grand-Pré
One hundred and twenty-five local residents of Wolfeville donated
three full days to make this sign filled with flowers.
The farmer who owns the land donated that portion for the occassion of CMA 2004.

The Deportation Cross located where the Acadians are beloved to have been deported from at Grand-Pré. On property belonging to the Dominion Railroad, they have given permission to the Société Grand-Pré to move it to their property and to a location now believed to have been the actual site from where the Acadians were deported.

More photos of the Deportation Cross. This cross was installed by Acadians in Quebec in 1923 on the place thought then to be the location where the Acadians waited on shore to be deported in 1755.

We went to the Deportation Cross by wagon and this was the road leading there.

Sign gives a brief summary [very brief] who the Acadians were prior to Deportation.

Blomidon - This is the scene our Ancestors saw whenever
they looked across the Bay of Fundy from what is now Evangeline Beach
at Grand-Pré

The dykes the Acadians built have lasted all of these years.
A guide told us that without the dikes the lands would be flooded.

Rivière-aux-Canards fields where so many of our Ancestors once lived. When we see the vast lands our Ancestors once owned we realize even more all that has been taken away from their descendants.

Another photo of the Rivière-aux-Canards Cemetery.
The large grey stone to the left of the entrance is the commemorative marker.

Commemorative marker designating this having once been the Rivière-aux-Canards Cemetery where many Acadians are believed to have been buried before the Deportation of 1755. The inscription is beginning to fade from weathering.

Sign at the entrance of Ste-Famille Cemetery in Falmouth. Acadian homes once lines both sides of the road leading here.

Commerative stone at Ste-Famille Cemetery in Falmouth. Human remains were discovered when escavation began to build homes in this area.. Archeologists from the Nova Scotia Museum have determined the parameters where some 300 Acadians were buried.

This Acadian Cemetery located at Major's Point, Nova Scotia is said to have been an Indian Burial Ground. When the Deportation began, some Acadians fled and hid here in 1755. Some died from cold and starvation during the winter. This is the first known Acadian Deportation post Deportation.

Highway sign leading to Memramcook, New Brunswick. This was once a large Acadian village and many Acadians still live here today.

Flowers located at the Beaubassin historic site. Beaubassin was once a large Acadian community before 1755.

Map of the village of Beaubassin. The area known as Fort Lawrence was originally called "Beaubassin" by the French in 1671 and "Chignecto" by the Indians. It was the first major settlement to be established by the French outside of Port Royal in Acadia.

The Beaubassin monument was erected to the memory of the last known residents of the Acadian village of Beaubassin in 1750.

The Acadians being deported from Grand-Pré that fateful day waited at Horton's Landing as the long boats plied their way to the shore.

The beautiful Gaspéreau River.

Highway sign for Cap-Pelé, New Brunswick where many Cormier families settled and still live today. My great grandmother was born here. There are other photos of Cap-Pelé elsewhere on this site.
