New Blog – AFGS Acadian Heritage News

The tag line is “Focus of this blog is to provide news and information regarding Acadian Heritage”.

It is a Heritage Blog by the American-French Genealogical Society, and although it is not strictly a Canadian blog, it is about the Acadians – and there are genealogical societies on both sides of the border - so the blog caught my eye over the weekend as something I would like to read..

One of the blogs is “As tough as her ancestors” which the blogger tells about being interviewed by her niece about what it is like being Acadian, and she shows pictures of her exhibit, and video of the process – very interesting! The exhibit was called “Nova Scotia - Acadia”

Another blog was about the 34th Annual Acadian Festival which was held at
Madawaska, Maine on August 11th, and a visit to the "The Acadian Historic Village – Caraquet, NB".

All in all, it shows promise of being a very good blog to follow if you are interested in the news and information about the Acadian community in both the United States and Canada.
