I have recently remembered your book, The Meeting Place (Song of Acadia #1), as I have been trying to locate information about an ancestor. I wanted to know if you have a list of the sources of the information of the French movement out of Canada. My ancestor was born in Lower Canada and I am having trouble locating any additional information.
If you have a list of histories or other articles that you use for research would you be willing to share those with me in my search for my ancestors?
Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.
Information on where the Acadians were shipped has recently become the basis for a number of academic articles. But the information is still extremely spotty when it comes to individuals.
Perhaps the best sources would be to travel to the Acadian Museum in Truro or Halifax, and ask one of the resident academics for who they feel would best be able to assist you.
Alternately, a genealogist based in one of the former Acadian settlements would certainly have worked on this issue before now.
Janet Jehn has also created a related website that many say is the absolute best for such information. You can find this at www.acadian-cajun.com/age.htm
Readers: Do you have additional resources to share with Wendi?
