What I did to find the ship on which my ancestor was deported was:
first find out where your ancestor resided before the deportation.
Second find out where your ancestor was sent for the exile.
Then if you are lucky, as I was, the name of the ship will be mentioned as
the one that transported the Acadians to that location.
The census of 1963 is a way of locating your ancestor in exile.
