Some of the settlements where the Acadians chose to live prior to, as well as post Deportation, are listed below. By far and large, our Ancestors sought to live where they would not be hampered by the English government; where they could live in peace. This would not be that easy but with time they fought for what they believed in and would eventually receive land grants from the government.

This page takes you to various settlements our Ancestors pioneered - some were colonized before the Deportation of 1755 which lasted until 1763. Others after 1763 when during those years they sought refuge and a place to establish new roots. In some instances you will also find quite a bit of genealogical information included.
