MSS-063-Acadian Voyageurs

Maple Stars and Stripes fleur-de-lis logoDid any of your Acadian ancestors migrate to Quebec after the deportation and become voyageurs? I had never considered such a thing until speaking with Claude Ferland, today’s guest. Not only did some become voyageurs, but some also held very responsible positions in these ventures.

Monsieur Ferland shares with us the stories of Alexander Mackenzies’s two famous expeditions and the role of Acadians in these historic voyages. He also discusses the dit name “Cadien” and where you can search to discover if your Acadians were also voyageurs.
