Home of Acadian-Cajun & French-Canadian Family Resources, Surnames and Historical Information... since 1991.


Here you will find links to the BEST Acadian-Cajun (both genealogy and NON-genealogy related) web sites, as well as general genealogical sites on the 'Net. Please feel free to add a link to your own main index.html web site. Be certain to add your link under the PROPER category, otherwise it may not be allowed. And don't forget to come back and "modify" your link, if the URL address changes, since obsolete links will be removed.

You may feel that your site should be listed under more than one category... and perhaps justifiably so. For example, perhaps your site includes genealogical information on both Acadian-Cajun and French-Canadian cultures. In such instances, I will allow multiple listings however, keep in mind that I personally review and validate every request for links and only process those requests which are legitimate.

In return for this "free" service, I would be very grateful if you could likewise add a link from your own site to my Acadian Genealogy Homepage, using the main URL address: http://www.acadian.org/ And, if you want to make it a "graphic link", just connect to http://www.acadian.org/graphics.html to source a graphic image of your choice.

Many thanks and God Bless,

Yvon Cyr

Acadian-Cajun Genealogy
I know a bit on the history & genealogy on the Acadians and Cajuns beyond what I have on this WebSite. I also have a variety of printed resources. If I can provide clarification on anything, I'd be glad to help. But I can't do major research for you. Also, I don't have the genealogy of all Acadians and Cajuns. I may be able to help you with some basic genealogy, but detailed analysis of a particular problem will be beyond my time limitations.

Acadians in Gray
I am still documenting every one of the 2,800+ Acadians who came to Louisiana from 1764 until the early 1800s. Most elements of "Acadian Immigrants to Louisiana" are still "under construction," especially the family histories and the individual footnotes, but, now that I am retired from the classroom, I chase after Acadian immigrants nearly every day.
