Bienvenue à l'Acadie

People say forgetting is a difficult thing to do
Forgetting about a love which was sincere and true
Forgetting about the tenderness which was there from the start
But for me it's the remembering which is tearing my heart apart...

Update: 16 October 2004 - The Unthinkable Has Occurred For Update

When I opened this site it was at the urging of friends. I agreed but indicated at that time that I would just for the fun of it...however...if it became “work” and the situation became such that I “had” to work on it then I would pull the plug. That time has arrived.

I have received communications from a couple of individuals who do not seem pleased that I have not added information on the site for some time. I agree...and I should have deleted any links which were not functional. That said...I make no apologies. Those who know me know what my time schedule is and that spare time is at a premium and far apart....weekends and evenings included. Working on my own research is next to impossible and with the summer weather arriving...any spare time I can muster will be spend on the rivers.

I would like to thank the many hundreds of individuals who have taken the time to write to me or signed my guest book and I am slowly catching up to answering ALL your emails and guest book entries. The kind responds was totally unexpected but it was these emails and guest book entries with words of gratitude and encouragement which prompted me in attempting to add additional information and maintain the site.

For those who have been in an on going dialog with me over the years...I will certainly continue to do so and provide you with any records...information and so on that I just will not be on the site.

The the request of the individual who wrote it is here “publically”. It is in fact this last communication which made me sit back and think about making a decision regarding the site. My option was clear...pull the I really have no time for this...

Thank you all...and be safe...

I did not check the private entry box on this entry because I want you to responde to me and all the other people who view this site on a regular bacis. Do you plan on updating your data dase or not. If not then say so we can stop going to your site and hoping that we will find that you have finally posted this information. I am a big fan of your site as you have provided a lot of information for me and I will still visit your site from time to time. However I would like to see you remove the the Genealogey - Families from Baie Sainte Marie from your site until you have got your data base back on line.

Thank you
Willie Saulnier

In responds to Mr. Saulnier...I do have most of my database from Baie Ste.-Marie back...including new found information not yet's simply not online...


On the 29th day of August in the year of our Lord 1651 as a warm brisk wind blew over the south western coast of Nova Scotia, a tiny ship arriving from France sailed into Pombcoup harbour. At the command of this vessel was Charles de Sainte-Etienne de LaTour, Governor of Nova Scotia. With him were a number of colonists he had brought back to settle in this new land.

On shore, the hills with their virgin pines and hardwood looked down with all their grandeur and magnificence as if sentinels standing guard on these new arrivals.

Amongst the passengers was a nobleman, whom some say, de LaTour had known in his youth and whose ancestors had been connected with his own family. This gentleman was arriving as Charles de LaTours' new Major-General and Commander of the King's troops in Acadia and was later to become Lieutenant-Governor and King's Attorney for the Province. His name was Sieur Philippe Mieux d'Entremont and he was my ancestral grand-father...
