A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

Theriault Historic Building in Caraquet, New Brunswick

I am a descendant of the couple Joseph Jean Theriault and Marie-Joseph Girouard who were among the second wave of Acadians who settled in Caraquet, New Brunswick in the 18th century. This is a photo that a relative of mine took on a trip to the Caraquet Village Historique last summer. As you can see from the sign on the building, this was Nicolas D Theriault’s store.

  1. Hello Cousin! Nicholas D. Thériault was my great uncle. His sister Amanda was my grandmother. Their parents were Dominique Thériault and Philomène Dumas of Grande Anse, NB. I can go down the line to France if you’re interested.
