Canadian Genealogy - Acadia - Did you know?

From 1632 to 1653, groups of settlers arrived in Acadia. Their survival in the new settlement relied on their relationship with the two prominent Aboriginal people of the region, the Mi’kmaq and the Maliseet. There were recorded marriages between the settlers and the Indigenous women in both Roman Catholic and Mi’kmaq rites. The Acadians lived a relatively quiet life with ravages of war from time to time, as they occupied the British and French Empire’s borderland region. Because of these experiences, they learned to distrust imperial authorities and refused to cooperate with census takers.
