Father Clarence d’Entremont Short Stories

Father Clarence d’Entremont (1909-1998) was an Acadian genealogist and historian, originally from Yarmouth County (Pubnico), an Acadian area of southwestern Nova Scotia.

Among his impressive publications history is this collection of 100 Short Stories published in the Yarmouth Vanguard between 1989 and 1990. I have provided a link to the Musée Acadien website which has the entire collection of Father d’Entremont’s Short Stories. The Musée Acadien is located in West Pubnico and is the home of la Société Historique Acadienne de Pubnico-Ouest, founded in 1973.

Not all stories are specific to Yarmouth County and the Pubnico area – a few stories are based on people and events in Clare (Baie-Sainte-Marie) and Digby County. Links to those are listed here; further down on this post is also a section of links to Short Stories that will appeal to Acadians everywhere.
