Viewed on line via <ancestry.com>. <acadian-cajun.com> This website, hosted by south LA genealogist/historian Tim Hébert, is full of information on the Acadians & Cajuns. As of August 2010, it has a new look & added features that make it only better. (Sadly, Tim died in May 2012, but his website is still on line.) <acadian-home.org> This website, hosted by New England genealogist-extraordinaire Lucie LeBlanc Consentino, is full of information, much of it primary source material, on every aspect of Acadian history & culture. Allow yourself hours to do justice to this superb site--it is, in this author's opinion, the finest website devoted to Acadian history/genealogy on the Internet today. An especially welcome addition is a detailed chronology of Le Grand Dérangement by Paul Delaney. Acadian Memorial Located in downtown St. Martinville, LA, on the banks of the Bayou Teche, down the street from the famous Evangeline Oak, the Acadian Memorial is both a museum & a research center. The Robert Dafford Mural is the highlight of the museum on the first floor. Also there, on the opposite wall from the mural, is the famous Wall of Names, bronze tablets that list nearly every Acadian who found refuge in LA from 1764-1813. Upstairs is the research center where visitors can trace their Acadian ancestry in the Memorial's extensive database. The Memorial's website is <acadianmemorial.org>. A prominent feature of the website is its Ensemble Encore, which includes two important essays by Dr. Carl A. Brasseaux at <acadianmemorial.org/english/ensembleencoreset.html>. Ensemble Encore also includes a growing & superbly-documented database on Acadian immigrants called Life Lines, which includes not only the first generation of Acadian immigrants but many of their children as well. Acadian Roots This is the website of my cousin Aline CORMIER of Moncton, NB. It includes, among other things, a copy of English Captain Nicholls's published account of the sinking of his ship Duke William & a sister ship, Violet, in the North Atlantic in Dec 1758 while deporting Acadians from Île St.-Jean to St.-Malo--one of the worst tragedies of Le Grand Dérangement.

White, CEA [no longer operative] White, Stephen A. CEA. <umoncton.ca/etudeacadiennes/centre/white/sha.html> [no longer operative]. Stephen White has included on the website for the Acadian Studies Center at the University of Moncton in New Brunswick family genealogies that will appear in the next installment of his magisterial Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles Acadiennes, or DGFA-2. Although these families were the ones who stayed in Canada, their genealogies can still be useful for tracing Louisiana lineages. White, DGFA-1 White, Stephen A. Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles Acadiennes, Premiere Partie, 1636 à 1714. 2 vols. Moncton, NB: Centre d'Études Acadiennes, 1999. This is now the standard genealogy of the Acadian people. As the title reveals, like Arsenault's genealogy, it is in French, but it is easy to follow. Like anything from the hand of Stephen A. White, it is a most reliable source based on solid scholarship & exhaustive research. DGFA-2, still in production, will cover Acadian marriages from 1715-80. Corrections to DGFA-1 can be found on the website for the Centre d'Études Acadiennes. White, DGFA-1 English White, Stephen A.
