Notice ...

  • The recorded population of Acadians appears to have nearly doubled in less than forty years.
  • Few Acadians remained in what had become (in 1783) the United States.


  • Precise population numbers are impossible to know in the 18th century.
  • 1763 was the height of the Acadian dispersal. By 1800 Acadians had found their way into the French-speaking world or vacant areas where they could once again express their Frenchness.
