The Association of Bourgeois’ of Acadian Descent (ABAD) wishes to welcome all visitors to the site. We hope that you will find the information contained within helpful and interesting.

Our goal, is to develop an environment that encourages and supports communications between the Bourgeois descendants of the Acadian couple Jacques Bourgeois and Jeanne Trahan as well as to promote and encourage genealogical research of the Bourgeois family.

One of our major projects is to organize and host the "Retrouvailles Bourgeois" family gathering held in the context of the World Acadian Congress (CMA). The association has already begun work on the "Retrouvaille Bourgeois 2019" to be held in Grande-Digue, New-Brunswick from the 13th to the 15th of August 2019. For more information and to keep up to date on the preparation follow us on the Retrouvailles Bourgeois 2019 Facebook page. For more information about the CMA2019 visit the official CMA2019 site or follow them on the CMA2019 Facebook page

Attention: The ABAD is working in collaboration with the The Bourgeois Story Internet site to document and to discuss issues related to the Bourgeois family genealogy. If you are interested in participating, or if you have any comments or suggestions regarding the family genealogy please contact us. Thank you.
