Acadian Church Records: Port LaJoye, Ile St. Jean, 1749-1758

Most of the Acadian church records have been transcribed and published.  Only one set of records has never before been published ... the Port LaJoye, Ile St. Jean records.  While the records go back to the 1720s, the 1750s are most important because of the great influx of Acadians escaping from the English.  This volume includes those records from 1749 to 1758 (I may do the earlier records at a later date).  You will also receive the web location for a page that will contain corrections and will allow you to post questions & answers on the records.

Hébert Family Databook
     Everything about the first 150 years of Héberts ... this book is the printed version of the website.  Since many people aren't online, and others prefer to look at information in printed form, I put the complete Hébert Family Website into a book. 
     It contains everything about the Acadian Héberts of the 17th and 18th century, as well as additional info on Hébert who came to Louisiana.  Besides raw data, it contains a constructed genealogy of the 1st 6 generations in both Etienne & Antoine's lines.   Plus, I have included all my notes on the sources and references of the 1st 6 generations of Héberts.

Fascimiles of the 1785 Ships Lists
     In 1785, seven ships brought 1600 Acadians to Louisiana.  Copies of the actual ship manifests are available.  Some ship lists are only one page long, while some are longer (up to 22 pages). 
    These make great items for framing and display ... a copy of your ancestor's listing on the ship that brought them to Louisiana. Don't know what ship they were on?  Check the online ship lists.

Acadian-Cajun Genealogy: Step by Step
     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.
