Below you will find five particular families featured who were involved in the 1758 deportation from Isle St Jean, which will reflect a more personal perspective towards such a distressing event which saw these people caught between the imperial ambitions of the French and the British. Each family page features an interactive map designed to trace the family’s migration routes before, during, and after the expulsion. This feature combines contemporary mapping with modern GIS technology, presenting a unique interaction between the past and the present. These maps heavily relied upon multiple censuses, which formed a coherent and informative narrative. This project also allows a small window into the past in which we can view the people of Isle St Jean as a population who did not passively accept their fate but continually acted with agency to mold and improve their situation.
