This site provides a journey through the memory of Acadians, the French-speakers of Atlantic Canada. In 2004, they celebrated the 400th anniversary of the first effort to create a French settlement in North America, in what was to become their part of the world. A year later, in 2005, they marked the 250th anniversary of their deportation, what they call their Grand dérangement (or Great Upheaval), at the hands of the British. This site provides both images and sounds connected with these two anniversaries, including reference to how they were marked on earlier occasions.
The Dictionary of Canadian Biography has a great deal of information about prominent Atlantic Canadians who died before 1930. The advanced search option allows researchers to select biographies of those associated with the four Atlantic Provinces.
