Biography

Roland Arsenault grew up in a coastal Acadian village in between Bouctouche and Cocagne in Kent county, New Brunswick, Canada.

Seeking adventure, he joined the local Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadron #763 during high school where he obtained both a glider pilot's license and a private pilots license.

After graduating from l'École Polyvalente Clément Cormier in 1992, he studied a year at le Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean followed by a year at l'Université de Moncton before spending a few more years at the University of New Brunswick where he received a Bachelors degree in Computer Science.

In 2000, he moved to New Hampshire to accept a position with the University of New Hampshire's Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping working with data visualization. There, he got to travel the world as he participated in numerous research expeditions taking him to exotic locations such as Antarctica and the North Pole.

Hobbies

Genealogy

Roland got his first taste of family history research in about 2010 when he decided to see if he could find evidence online to support his father's claim that Roland's grand father Gérard and famous Acadian author Antonine Maillet are first cousins. Well, it turns out they are, and that experience got him hooked.

Motorcycle Racing

In 2006, Roland purchased his first motorcycle, a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 250, in order to save on gas and have an easier time parking at work. The theory was that it would pay for itself in 2 years just in gas savings alone.

The following year, in May 2007, he decided to try a track day with Tony's Track Days where he could ride his motorcycle on New Hampshire Motor Speedway's (NHMS) road course in Loudon, New Hampshire. That's all it took to get addicted to track riding and needless to say, the bike never paid itself off.

Since that first taste of the track, Roland has acquire a 1995 Honda RS125 purpose built race bike which he competes with in the Loudon Road Racing Series and the Unites States Classic Racing Association. He picked #763, his former Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadron number, as his race number.

Hi Roland,

I contacted Don Gallant, as he has created a number of duplicates to profiles on your project. This - http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hache_Dit_Gallant-31 is a duplicate of a PPP. I told him to contact the project and get these profiles merged.

Good Day Roland, I am very interested in joining the Acadians Project and the badge to share my research. My history in Canada starts out with the Acadians in the Canadian maritime and the contacts with the Mi'kmaq. I am from Newfoundland originally and trying to not only follow my history but to help others. Thank You.

Ok, I'm finally asking to join the Acadian project. My main Acadian lineage is Duon/DeYoung, but of course if you delve far enough, you find you're related to everyone.

If I may, could I have the Acadian badge?
