Guillaume (Billy) Johnson His Story, Our History
PRESENTLY OUT OF PRINT as of Oct., 2019
Author: Phillias Johnson
This soft cover, 169 page book has many colour and B&W photos, diagrams, and charts to give the reader an up close and personal look at the Acadian way of life, as well as covering the genealogy of the Johnson Acadian family.
More than just a book on his family tree, Phil Johnson has created an easy to read and highly informative book on his Acadian past. This is a thoroughly researched work that has taken 10 years to complete. As the title indicates, this is a book which details the life of Billy Jr, the son of a Scotsman (William – Guillaume – Johnson) who was part of the occupying forces at Port Royal after 1710, and an Acadian woman (Isabelle Corporon). Not only has the author captured the Johnson family heritage in story form, he has included all reference sources to aid other genealogy researchers in their quest for factual documentation relating to the Acadians, and to this particular branch of Acadian Johnsons. The colour and B&W photos along with the many charts help to broaden the perspective of readers, and provide a rare glimpse into the lives of those whom this book is written. Additionally, the early chapters documenting the Acadian way of life and the lives of the soldiers, broaden the knowledge base of what is known about the life and times of the peoples found in the Maritimes during the 1700s.
