Grand anse general view


A few years ago I spent some time touring many of the cemeteries of Gloucester Country, New Brunswick and now I’m ready to share my photographs with those of you who have an interest in the Acadians of the Caraquet area, but who can’t make it up there yourselves!

    • Greetings,
      The name Pinet/Pinette is more common in that area. Is there a possibility that they could be this couple^
      William Godin and Valerie Pinette
      married on May 14th, 1907 in Gloucester.
      If you are not sure, it would be helpful to have the names of any of their children – especially if born in New Brunswick.

  3. Bonjour, I was wondering if there is an older cemetery in Grand-Anse.. I cannot find anywhere the graves of the pioneers of Grand-Anse, like Simon Landry and many Theriault who should be buried in Grand-Anse before 1880. I know that the Church burnt in 1890 but that does not explain the missing of graves. Also I am surprised to learn that all vital records were lost in that fire. Should there be a copy at the Diocese of Bathurst or Caraquet?? Nice talking to you
