(8) Information from the English supplement to the "Dictionnaire généalogique" by Stephen White:

"The reconstruction of numerous families from Rivière-aux-Canards and Pisiquit would prove much less satisfactory were it not for the depositions of the Acadians at Belle-Île-en-Mer. The registers of these depositions were deliberately compiled in order to compensate for the lost parochial archives. They are equivalent in value to the parish registers, and even if they are not a true primary source insofar as they concern the forbears of the declarants, they must be recognized as one of the primary sources of Acadian genealogy."
