This atlas is the third in a series researched and written by Paul Surette. The document, with photos in full colour, chronicles the establishment of early Acadian settlements at the head of the Bay of Fundy between the ridges of Aulac and Amherst along the Missaguash (Mesagoueche) and La Planche Rivers. By combining detailed genealogy of the Acadian families who settled in this region and extensive census data which helps to locate each generation of these families in specific localities, Surette is able to map out where these families settled. He also relates how this local story fits into the broader events of the 17th and 18th century history of this area. Some of the main Acadian families settling this area were: Cyr, Bourgeois, Arsenot (ault), Richard, Caissie, Poirier, Cormier, Mouton, DeVeau, Doucet, Buhot and others.
