Acadian-Cajun Genealogy & History
YOUR PORTAL TO ACADIAN-CAJUN GENEALOGY & HISTORY ONLINE
        
The Acadians were French settlers
of eastern Canada who were exiled
from their land in the 1750s.
The Cajuns are their descendants 
who settled in Louisiana.
Today, thousands of Acadian-Cajun 
descendants cherish their rich 
legacy of history, culture, & genealogy.

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 >

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.

Finally - the new edition of Acadian-Cajun Genealogy is now available

at CafePress and Amazon. It incorporates the advances made in Acadian-Cajun genealogical research since the first printing in 1993.

If you'd like a copy of the Ile St. Jean Acadian records, the Acadian-Cajun Atlas, or the Hebert Databook, they are now available from CafePress and Amazon. Any proceeds will go to support Acadian heritage efforts.
