Located in northeastern New Brunswick on the Acadian Peninsula in the heart of old Acadie is a little gem surrounded by thousands of families you are probably related to. It is situated among villages you've probably heard of in your genealogy searches. It is about 45 minutes east of Bathurst (Nepisiguit) and 10 minutes from Caraquet.

The Acadian Village is a cultural heritage site which has preserved Acadian culture and way of life from the years 1770 to as recent as 1949 in New Brunswick. There are many homes, small businesses, barns and buildings with the histories of their original owners that have been collected and restored to their original state. These buildings have been situated in a reconstructed village that you walk through starting in the 1700's and walking into the 20th century.

There are many interesting families associated with the preserved homes, farms and businesses that have been placed on this site. The purpose of creating this sub-group of the Acadians Project is to find our connections with one or many of the families who are represented in the Historic Acadian Village.

Situé dans le nord-est du Nouveau-Brunswick sur la «Péninsule acadienne» au cœur de «l'Acadie» est un petit bijou entouré de milliers de familles avec lesquelles vous êtes probablement apparenté. Il est situé parmi les villages dont vous avez probablement entendu parler dans vos recherches généalogiques. Il se trouve à environ 45 minutes à l'est de Bathurst (Nepisiguit) et à 10 minutes de Caraquet.

Le village Acadien est un site du patrimoine culturel qui a préservé la culture et le mode de vie acadiens entre les années 1770 et l'ère 1949 au Nouveau-Brunswick. Il existe de nombreuses maisons, petites entreprises, granges et bâtiments avec l'histoire de leurs propriétaires d'origine qui ont été récupérés et restaurés dans leur état d'origine. Ces bâtiments ont été situés dans un village reconstruit que vous traversez à partir des années 1700 et jusqu'au 20e siècle.

Il existe de nombreuses familles intéressantes associées aux maisons, fermes et commerces préservés qui ont été placés sur ce site. La création de ce sous-groupe du Projet des Acadiens a pour but de voir si vous êtes le descendant d'une ou de plusieurs familles représentées dans le village historique acadien.

I will be visiting the village this summer and will be taking photographs of each house, store and dwelling to add to this page.

What a great trip that will be. Please let us know what you're seeing and what thoughts you are having.

Hi Jason, there are good references about some of these families at the end of this article.

Awesome! Thank you Gisele, what a great find. I can't wait to see how many people I'm related too once it's all done.

What is the best way in your opinion to help incorporate these references? It's a lot of combined information. As Cindy mentioned on one of her emails it best not to copy and past but rather write a new description based on those references. I guess my question is how would we display or link that information? Will it go to another page or an external link?

Hi Gisèle, it's been a long time! I'm going to start putting some effort in more research. If anyone is interested in joining that would be great. Would like to get this done and publish it on the G2G.

Hi Jason,

Glad to hear from you. I will join you in trying to complete this project. A lot has been done already, just needs a final push.
