Of the dozens of nations represented in our family’s genealogy, there are four distinct branches – two of which are on my side and two on my husband Mark’s side.

 

There are certain sites that I return to time and again for my research and the best genealogy links for Acadian research are listed below.

 

The ruins of Fort Beausejour, the fort where numerous Acadian families, including the Melansons, were held by the British.

On my side, the most prevalent are the Quebecois and French Canadians of my Dad’s side, and the Acadians of my Mom’s side. Both of these groups originally came from France in the 16th – 17th centuries.

On Mark’s side, there are the Swedish and Danish of my mother-in-law’s side, and the Quaker ancestry and royal lines of my father-in-law’s side.

This post outlining my favorite links exploring numerous aspects of the original settlers on the eastern seaboard of Canada is the first of a series highlighting links for each branch.

These links are for more general research. However, there are dozens of sites online that focus on specific surnames of Acadian families. These can be searched using this great Google genealogy search tool – just scroll to the bottom for the family name search.
