Online Database

The Centre Acadien's genealogical database is now online and accessible free of charge to anyone who creates an account (see next section). It contains the names of Acadian families from Baie Sainte-Marie (Sainte-Marie’s Bay or Clare). It should be noted that the information within the database is provided as entered, which is to say it may contain errors due to unverifiable or non-existent sources, or as found within the primary source documents used to populate the database. We invite database users to notify us of any verifiable errors.

  1. 1. Create your account with an email address,
    2. Receive a confirmation by email that your account has been created (please allow a variable time because as the request is processed manually),

Access the database

The genealogical database is now publicly accessible to allow users to conduct research on their own, from the leisure of any computer. As the Centre Acadien has limited staff, genealogical research service requests will no longer be accepted.
