Acadian-Cajun Genealogy Database I have put together all of the surname information I added in 2009 into a single online database of all Acadians from the original settlers to the early 1800s. I may add more as time permits to move towards the year 1900, but that would take much more time. The information is behind a password because if there are problems I will stop allowing access. To get the login information, you must join the Acadian-Cajun Facebook group HERE (must be logged into Facebook). I just put in the basic data - no notes or sources because the size would have been unmanageable. More Information >
Ellen's Acadian Ancestry Lisa Kudrow visted the Ellen show to share how Ellen and Madonna are connected. The line she showed was one of Acadian ancestry, back to Martin Aucoin. I have more details on the line and constructed genealogy (so you can see how you may be related) HERE.
