As our ancestors did not all know how to write, there are over 30 different spellings for our Barrieau-Barriault family name. The greater number are the Barrilleaux, Barilleaux and Barilleau of Louisiana and Texas. In second place, are the Barriault of Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Ontario, followed by the Barrieau of New Brunswick and the New England states. We then find the Barrieault, Berriault, Bariau and Bériau of Quebec and the United States, the Barrio and Berrio of Massachusetts, the Barieau of California, the Barreau of British Columbia, Oklahoma and Texas, the Borieo, Boreo and Borio of Michigan, the Barry of New Brunswick and Massachusetts, and even the Bennett of Massachusetts! Careful! Nicolas Barillot is not the only Barrieau to have settled in North America. Four settlers, including three Bériau and one Barillon, and others such as Barreau, Bariteau and Baribeau, of similar family names with no apparent connection, also settled in Quebec as of the beginning of the 17th century. How do you spell your family name?

Logo meaning
It is Women's month and today we celebrate the creativity of our Claire LeBlanc, grand-daugther of Léonard and Léonie Barrieau and the artist behind a few of our logos for the previous World Acadian Congress. It is in the spirit of appreciation for excellence that we launch today her latest creation - our 2019 logo! It marvelously pulls together facts and passion by featuring the host region of the 2019 World Acadian Congress, the French area of Prince Edward Island and southeast New Brunswick, wearing the colours of the Acadian flag. Bouctouche, the charming town hosting our family, is marked with the star that has guided many Acadians home and, as has been the case for all the logos since our first family reunion twenty-five years ago with 1994 CMA, the most popular spellings of our family name are proudly showcased. Bravo, Claire!
