I know that my Boudreau and Petitot ancestors survived the Deportation of 1755. They took refuge eventually in Quebec City. I have Drouin Interment records for six of my ancestors during the early months of 1758.
I have learned a little bit from one site, which I edited. "Quebec City was less than ideal for our ancestors. There was a dearth of supplies and a severe famine. The Acadians had to make do with cod and rotten meat. According to the testimony of refugees, these poor living conditions brought about the death of a number of Acadians." On another sites, they said it was a smallpox epidemic.
I wish that their was a site that would tell the plight of our Acadia ancestors in Quebec City.
