The Drouin Institute’s website, Genealogy Quebec, now has an additional 35,000 Acadian family files, based on original records, on its Acadia — Families tool, for a total of 130,342 family files.
The records span from the beginning of the Acadian colony to the end of 1849. In addition, 30 locations covering from 1850 to the end of the available registers are included. A list of these locations, as well as a detailed overview of the collection, are available on the Drouin Institute’s blog.
The files compile the information available about an individual. They generally contain the names and first names of the parents, the first name of the child, the dates of birth and/or baptism, death and/or burial, and marriage, as well as the parish. The files usually provide links to the original documents of the baptisms, marriages, and burials mentioned.
