Acadian Marriages

[This list has only just begun.]

Please note:  The family names in CAPITAL letters are the ones that ended up in Louisiana as a result of the Grand Derangement (individuals with # next to their names settled in Louisiana).  The source for these marriages is the standard work on Acadian genealogy, White, DGFA-1, which is organized alphabetically by surname, so page numbers are not needed here; Arsenault, Généalogie, is used only as a supplement (indicated by *).  Only the Acadian marriages in White are listed here.  As you can see, settlement locations are not limited to peninsula Acadia but include all of greater Acadia--present-day Nova Scotia, including Cape Breton Island (called Île Royale by the French), Prince Edward Island (called Île St.-Jean by the French), New Brunswick, Maine, the Gaspé Peninsula of Québec Province, and eastern and southern Newfoundland.
