|| There are many good 'How-To'
books on genealogy. But genealogy is a large field of study. Each nationality,
culture, locality, etc. has its own particular types of information and
research methods. Everyone knows of the recent popularity of things known
as 'Cajun' ... food, music, and so on. The Cajun people are a rather distinct
culture based in south Louisiana. And there are many 'displaced Cajuns'
who have moved into other parts of the country. This book addresses the
genealogy of the Cajun people in Louisiana. It also goes back, through
the Exile of the mid 1700's, to the original Acadians in Canada. It will
assist you in tracing your Acadian-Cajun ancestry back to the 1600's with
as little trouble as possible.
This web site will give you a
basic run-down of the publication, and a sampling of its contents. Since
the book is well over 100 pages, you may want to obtain
a copy if you have Acadian-Cajun ancestry in your lineage.
Revised Version Now Available! --- The book was recently rewritten to include information that has changed since it was first published. It is available from Amazon.com (link).
