The Best
  • Acadian-Cajun Genealogy & History (Hebert)
    This site - The Acadian material is mainly pre-exile and it includes Louisiana Acadian material.
  • Acadian Home (Consentino)
    While I have spent the last decade working on church business, Linda has been busy adding more and more content. The site is concentrated on Acadian material - pre and post deportation, but there are a few things on Louisiana Acadians.
  • Acadian Genealogy (Cyr)
    Yvon was an early presence online with Acadian genealogy. His site has become quite commercial, but there is still a lot of content there.
