About La Petite Souvenance
[Title not published 1987-2001] La Petite Souvenance was a bi-annual magazine first published by the Société historique acadienne de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard (Acadian Historical Society of Prince Edward Island), founded in 1955 by the Association des instituteurs et institutrices acadiens de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard (Association of Prince Edward Island Teachers). Its publication ran from 1979-1986 and was dedicated to discovering and documenting the history of the Acadians community on Prince Edward Island. It presented documents related to genealogy, folklore, and history in a variety of formats including letters, testaments, personal journals, and articles. In 1984, a special edition was released commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Acadian flag. Publication of La Petite Souvenance was revived from 2002-2009 by the Comité historique Soeur-Antoinette-DesRoches (Sister Antoinette DesRoches Historical Committee). The mission of the revived publication was, "the promotion, research and dissemination of Acadian history, as well as the protection of Acadian heritage." Includes occasional numero specials.
