My guest today is Stephanie Pettigrew, the Research Director of a new exhibit at the Fredericton Region Museum focusing on the Acadian residents of Pointe-Sainte-Anne. In particular, Stephanie tells us about the discovery of a personal family connection to a prominent local Acadian farmer and intermediary.
How much do you think you know about New Brunswick history? Personally, I think we do a pretty bad job of teaching it, and most people don’t embrace it.
