Your Help is Needed
by the Acadian Museum to Reconstruct Family Genealogies.
Rita destroyed over 2,000 documents in the Acadian Museum
in Erath, including family genealogies.
The family genealogies
are very valuable as they will provide the information needed
to trace one's ancestry upward using the published resources
such as the Fr. Hebert's South & SW Louisiana
Records, the Diocese of Baton Rouge [DOBR] Records, the Archdiocese
of New Orleans [ADNO] records, etc.
Stanley LeBlanc, a Native New Iberian living
in Dallas, TX, who has a website
devoted to Cajun, Acadian and Louisiana Genealogy, History and
Culture, has volunteered
to recontruct the family genealogies that were destroyed.
In order to accomplish this, we need the families to resubmit
the genealogy information.
An online form is available here.
One can also send information to the Acadian Museum at the following
P. O. Box 53597
