Images of old St Jacques de L'Achigan

These images are collected together for Rivets (descendants of Albert and Raymond)  and Yettos or Guertin (descendants of Claire Rivet who married Walker Yetto) and extended family!  You are all descendants of the Acadians, Amireault, Lord, Melancon, Jeanson, who help to found this special town.  These images of St Jacques de L'Achigan were taken around the time Joseph Emile Paul Rivet was baptized there in 1880. The actual church burned down in 1914 (first photo) but was rebuilt.  Today the town is known as St Jacques de Montcalm.

(Many of these postcards are copied from another site to which I would love to give recognition and provide a lick but I can no longer find it!  If you are the person from Québec who posted these images originally, I will happily provide a link! Thank you)

Below is a recap of the stories written about Acadians in this blog so far.  This list includes some early posts that may not have been well researched but I am reviewing them for accuracy and hope they will "make the cut"!
