The Centre acadien of Université Sainte-Anne carries out the dual mission of promoting research in Acadian studies and of supporting researchers at the University, whatever their discipline may be. Founded in 1972, the Centre possesses a collection of primary and secondary sources related to the past and contemporary reality of the Acadians that is the most comprehensive one of its kind in Nova Scotia.

The Centre acadien contains over 10,000 volumes and 100 linear meters of manuscripts and other original documents, in addition to several collections of recorded interviews about yesteryear’s way of life and recordings of vocal and instrumental music from Nova Scotia.

The Centre acadien is particularly proud of its many collections of photographs of Acadian life, taken by such renowned photographs as D.B. Field and John Collier, Jr., as well as its nearly complete collection of French-language newspapers published in the Maritime Provinces.

Sponsor of the Month – October 2017: Clare Township website

The Rendez-vous de la Baie is very pleased to announce that the www.claretownship.ca is the sponsor of the month for October 2017. Their generous contribution provides everyone with free access to the Acadian Interpretive Centre museum halls.

For the fourth consecutive year, we are very pleased to sponsor admission to the ‘Acadian Interpretive Centre’ for October, 2017. The Interpretive Centre is a great introduction to the history of Baie-Sainte-Marie (Clare) and pays tribute to the fortitude and ingenuity of the first settlers to arrive on its shores in 1768. The Centre also beautifully showcases the arts and culture which have evolved at Baie-Sainte-Marie since those early days.

My generation is the bridge between the old and the new: we are the last generation in Clare to have experienced a way of life that has all but disappeared. To this end, John and I have developed a website to record and preserve the history of Clare for genealogists and researchers in particular, but also for anyone interested in the history of our beautiful Baie-Sainte-Marie, its founding families and their descendants. In Phase One, we photographed every grave-marker in the Catholic cemeteries in Clare and developed a fully searchable grave-marker database; this is currently the backbone of our website. We also added a brief history of the churches and parishes at Baie-Sainte-Marie.

The next module we added was a brief overview of Shipbuilding in Clare, authored by Delbé Comeau. We also worked with Old Photos of Clare to bring you an old photos display at the Rendez-Vous and a rotating slide show in the Acadian Interpretive Centre.

The modules currently being developed will focus on the genealogy of the founding families of Baie-Sainte-Marie, on providing supporting genealogical documentation for the ‘Lost at Sea’ project (Cape St. Mary), the Association Madeleine LeBlanc ‘150 Femmes’ project and other material that will help us celebrate Clare250 in 2018.

Because we plan to keep adding material to our website, check us out periodically at http://claretownship.ca/ http://claretownship.ca/
