The HEBERT Family
This web site is dedicated to the family surname of HEBERT. 
Hebert Coat of Arms
     HEBERT is an Old French name. Most HEBERTs in North America are descendants of two Acadian HEBERT brothers who came to the New World in the mid-17th century. Today, it is one of the most populous groups of people with Acadian surnames. Though you will find HEBERTs around the world, the greatest numbers ... thousands in fact ... can be found in Louisiana and eastern Canada.

The focus of this site is on HEBERT genealogy, found in the links below.

"He Burt Yes - A Bear No"
     This painting by George Rodrigue illustrates what we've had to deal with for years.  It shows a boy in school where the black board says "No French Spoken in School".  Laws made French taboo in Louisiana schools after 1921.  In today's world, Hebert's face continual mispronunciations and missellings of their name, much like other French names.
     Do you want to share all of the information at the Hébert site with someone who's not online.  A printed version of the Hébert Family Website is now available.  If you try printing the site, it would take hours and over 700 pages.  I've compacted the material to fit it into about 300 pages.  Plus, the printed version of the 6 generations of Héberts includes additional notes which are not on the website.
I've uploaded the revised genealogy of HEBERTs.  The first 5 generations should now correlate with the information that will be in Stephen White's Dictionnaire.  There are additional generations in my data, but they are not complete.
