Bienvenue! I am excited to share with you two blogs this week. Both of them have a lot in common. Both are authored by Canadian women who live in Canada. Both have Acadian and French Canadian roots going back hundreds of years. Both of these blogs focus on Acadian & French Canadian genealogy.
Est-ce que je peux présenter à vous … (May I introduce to you…) Aline Cormier of Acadian Roots.
According to Aline’s blogger profile, she has been doing genealogy since 1976, and has been on the Internet since 1999. She started her blog, Acadian Roots on April 11, 2006. Aline shares her family history and her knowledge of Acadain life and culture. Although, I don’t have any Acadian roots myself, I find Aline’s articles to be very interesting. Aline finds those little tidbits of information which truly make her genealogy a family history. I especially liked this story she posted about her mother on Tuesday, April 25, 2006, as well as this post about two young lovers called a Tragic Romance.
And, now for our next GeneaBlogger.
Est-ce que je peux présenter à vous …Evelyn Yvonne Theriault of A Canadian Family aka Evelyn of Montreal.
Have your ever wondered what a “dit” name was? Or why French Canadian genealogy is so confusing at times? Well, Evelyn answers these questions and more on her blog. She has only been on the blogging scene since this past December when she posted her Introduction. Evelyn may be a newbie geneablogger but don’t let that fool you into thinking she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Because she does! Evelyn’s articles are chock full of information plus old maps, old postcards, documents, videos and photographs. Plus she has Famous Relatives: Rene Levesque, Quebec Nationalist. If you don’t know who he is or why he important to Quebec and French Canadians, just ask Evelyn.
