This post is also available in: Français

A major update was applied to the Acadia – Families tool, one of the 15 collections available to Genealogy Quebec subscribers.

Around 35 000 family files were added to the tool through this update.

What is the Acadia – Families tool?

The Acadia – Families tool contains 130 342 family files based on original Acadian records.

Currently, these records span from the beginning of the Acadian colony to the end of 1849. In addition, 30 locations covering from 1850 to the end of the available registers are included. A list of these locations as well as a more detailed overview of the collection are available on the Drouin Institute’s blog.

The files compile the information available about an individual. They generally contain the names and first names of the parents, the first name of the child, the dates of birth and/or baptism, death and/or burial, and marriage (a total of 239 517 dates), as well as the parish. The files usually provide links to the original documents of the baptisms, marriages and burials mentioned.
