From Migrant to Acadian

N.E.S. Griffiths uses the results of forty-five years of archival research in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Italy to place Acadian history in the context of contemporary North American and European events. She emphasizes relationships with the Mi'kmaq, showing they were of crucial importance in the development of Acadian identity, land-holding practices, settlement patterns, religious beliefs, and family structure. From Migrant to Acadian also explains how the imperial ambitions of both the French and the British collided with the strong belief of the Acadians in their own identity, resulting in the tragic deportation of the majority of the Acadian community in 1755. Although never achieving political independence, the Acadians forged a connection with Canada's broader national identity and continue to play a significant role in the Canadian mosaic.

Dictionary of Americanized French Canadian Names

Each of the thousands of entries in the dictionary contains two parts. The first of these is onomastic in nature, providing the etymology of the surname and any Americanized variants from which they stem.

Dictionary of Americanized French Canadian Names

"Monsieur Picard, who has previously written about the etymologies of the French migrants who settled Quebec and Acadia in the 17th and 18th centuries, now follows the spread of those surnames to various English-speaking parts of North America. Besides its derivations and Anglicizations, this resource references the first French-Canadian settlers bearing the names found in the dictionary. Professor Picard explains the development of French-Canadian surnames and their subsequent Americanization, along with a discussion of the various kinds of Anglicization, direct translations, partial translation, and mistranslations of French into English. Each of the thousands of entries in the dictionary contains two parts. The first of these is onomastic in nature, providing the etymology of the surname and any Americanized variants from which they stem. The second part contains some or all of the following information: the name of the first French-Canadian bearer of the name, the name of his parents, his place of origin in France, the name of his spouse and the names of her parents, and the place of his marriage"--Provided by publisher.

Seeking an Acadian Nation

Over the last two and a half centuries, the Acadian Deportation and the epic poem Evangeline have defined the French-speaking people known as Acadians. After their tragic deportation by the British from their homeland, Acadia, now known as Nova Scotia, those who re-settled in Louisiana are today called Cajuns--American, yet clearly distinct. Seeking an Acadian Nation--The 1930 Diary of an Evangeline Girl is a book based on the travel journal and scrapbook of Corinne Broussard, a young woman from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, who, along with 24 other Evangeline Girls, represented Louisiana in Canada for the 175th anniversary of the Deportation. Here in Corinne's own words is the story of her adventure--a 17-day, 3,000-mile train trip called a pilgrimage by Sen. Dudley J. LeBlanc who spearheaded the trip, and who was preparing to run for governor of Louisiana. This was the first time a group of Cajuns returned to their ancestral homeland since the exile began in 1755. It could be considered the birth of the French Renaissance in Louisiana. Beginning in the 1880s, Acadian leaders in Canada began a movement to reunite all of the Acadians in the world based upon a common language, religion, genealogy, and history. This book has three parts: first, the efforts at reunification to create an Acadian Nation (1880-1930); second, the pilgrimage to Grand-Pré as reported in Corinne's diary, with annotations (1930); and third, the Louisiana French Renaissance (1930-present). This narrative aligns Corinne's personal experiences with the Great Depression, emerging women's rights, religion, prohibition, and other forces reshaping the modern world in between the two world wars. Her journal reveals how history can be gleaned from resources such as scrapbooks, newspapers, correspondence, and diaries. Although the diary and annotations are in English, half of the 46 newspaper articles and other items in the scrapbook materials are in French.
