Re: Re: Your connections with Acadia - do they still exist?
The name Pommier doesn't ring a bell as far as being an Acadian name. It is therefore probably a family line that comes directly from France (region of Poitou-Charentes in particular), like many other names in Louisiana. If you wish to do a little bit of research on Acadian genealogy, visit link #2 above. This site offers several interesting links.
For the ones interested in viewing pictures from the last Congrès acadien in Nova Scotia, visit Link #1. There are dozens of nice pics there to see. Yes, I also look forward to the next Congrès in Caraquet (North East of New Brunswick)in 2009. Hopefully the momentum will keep on building between now and then.
I've also attached the site for Grand Pré at Link #3. The official Parks Canada web site doesn't do justice to the beauty of this site, but it's a start.
