    3. Sorry for the repeat many did not get through -----Original Message----- From: Paul L LeBlanc The DNA-Genealogy-History.com Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA Project DNA testing is adding substantially to the body of research available for all Acadian families, and because of the efforts of individual testers, we are now able to trace Acadian lineages, successfully and confidently, back to their earliest roots -- in the 17th and 18th centuries! Our Acadian AmerIndian Ancestry DNA project at Family Tree DNA includes Y chromosome DNA (Y DNA) results for male Acadian ancestors and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) results for female Acadian ancestors. The project welcomes all Acadian descendants, and descendants of allied families who married into Acadian lines, as well as AmerIndian descendants associated with the eastern Canadian First Nations people. All descendants of Acadian and related allied and First Nations family lines are welcome to join our Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA project including those who have taken the Family Finder test at Family Tree DNA or transferred their autosomal test resuts to Family Tree DNA from other testing companies. We encourage any male who carries an Acadian surname and descends from an Acadian family, or allied family who married into an Acadian line, to take the Y DNA test, in addition to the Family Finder autosomal DNA test, and all people who descend directly matrilineally (from your mother to her mother to her mother on up the tree) to an Acadian or a First Nations ancestor who married into an Acadian family to have an mtDNA test and join the project. One of the greatest tragedies of the Acadian expulsion that began in 1755 is the irrevocable loss of family. We, as family researchers, have problems in finding legitimate records for that period as in many instances our family records were destroyed. One of the greatest benefits of Y and mtDNA DNA testing with our Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA project is that we are able to "see through" the gaps in our family lines tracing back to the time of the Acadian expulsion, and find lost links that connect us back to our earliest ancestors.  By having the Y DNA and mtDNA test results of Acadian descendants in-hand, along with available genealogy information,  we are able to trace our most precious lineages from father to father, mother to mother, all the way back to the first Acadian settlement in Port Royal, Nova Scotia. Through advanced Y DNA testing, we've been able to pinpoint specific genetic markers that differentiate descendants of specific Acadian surname lines from all others. That our genes did not "forget" who we are and where we came from is perhaps one of the most significant research findings of our Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA project, and with our Y, mtDNA, and autosomal DNA test results, we are re-connecting and finding our way "home" in the truest sense of the word. Our astounding abilities to reconnect, by way of matching DNA test results, may be the best "just desserts" ever to be served upon those whose grand scheme was to split us asunder and thereby cause us to fail.  Our genetic, cultural, historical, and genealogical "staying power"  is why we have people from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Gaspe, Montreal, Ontario, Quebec and westward, Louisiana, Maine, New York, New Hampshire, Michigan, Maryland, Virginia, Texas, California, France, and everywhere else participating in "our" Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA project. The "Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA project" is therefore open to all of our "legacy" cousins, who carry our celebrated Acadian and Amerindian project surnames and lines, our "allied families,"  (including Romeros, Oubres, Smiths, and all others) who married into Acadian families and have become a part of the greater Acadian / Cajun family tree, the "collateral cousins," who are related to Acadians and are still trying to figure out how, and those special cousins who, as Cousin Paul has stated so eloquently, "were raised at an Acadian / Cajun hearth" -- by the fireplace or in the kitchen of a loving (and very wise!) Acadian / Cajun mother or grandmother who never used the words "biological," "half," "step," "foster," or "adopted" when she talked about all of her children and grandchildren.

My family came from Abbeville, New Iberia, and Avery Island, Louisiana. I wanted to know if they have a connection with my great grandpa Landry Provòst/Provò's siblings. Their names were Inez, Satirena, Rena, Isiel, Rosetta, Avery, Alzea, Alvice, and Lizzie. Sent via the LG Nitro™ HD, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

    1. [LAIBERIA] "Long Journey Home: The Ancestry of the Bret, Coco, Drapeau, Goudeau, Gremillon and Tassin Families in France"
    2. Cathy Sturgell
    3. I’d like to announce the publication of my book entitled "LONG JOURNEY HOME: The Ancestry of the Bret(Brette), Coco, Drapeau, Goudeau, Gremillon and Tassin Families in France.” I hope that it may be of interest to some of you with ties to colonial Louisiana. This book is the culmination of many years of tedious research in the Catholic sacramental records of France. “Long Journey Home” provides a long-awaited addition to many Louisiana, Gulf Coast and colonial Illinois family trees by bringing forth newly discovered, never-before published and fully documented DIRECT lineages of these six families in France. Included in the book is 175 years of the ancestry of Louisiana progenitor, Dominique Coco, in his native Italy (now France). You’ll discover the actual town in which he was baptized, the true spelling of his surname and the real names of his parents as nine generations of his ancestry is unveiled. It also contains eight generations (also spanning about 175 years) of Louis Gremillon’s ancestry beginning with his 1714 baptism in Courcival (Sarthe). You will also learn about the connection between this family and the Normand family of Igé (Orne) in France. The book also reveals the previously unknown parents of early Mobile settlers Louis Bret (Brette) and his wife, Elizabeth Roy, and provides baptismal records of their children – several of whom were married in Mobile as well as their daughter, Perrine Bret, who settled in Pointe Coupee Parish (Louisiana) after marrying Nicolas de la Cour in 1726. The book provides new details about the lineage of Michel Charles Goudeau, 18th century surgeon to the King in the French settlements of Mobile, the Illinois territory and Louisiana, beginning with his 1713 baptism in La Rochelle (Charente-Maritime) and including several new generations in the line of his mother, Marie Anne Dergny. In addition to the discovery of multiple generations of the Antoine Drapeau and Joseph Tassin families, this book also contains fascinating details uncovered about the ‘occupation’ of our direct Tassin ancestor - Marie Le Roy – and how this occupation may have played a role in her death as well as the death of several of her young children. Each chapter in the 174-page book begins with the Louisiana progenitor of one of these families and contains copies of the sacramental records used to establish lineage. The book is self-published. If you’re interested in ordering the book, please see my website: http://www.louisianalineage.com/longjourneyhome.htm If you have have any questions, please email me at: cathysturgell@yahoo.com Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/LongJourneyHome Also, if you know any one who may be interested, I’d appreciate it if you’d pass this on. Thanks so much...... Cathy

    2. Emily Young
    3. I have been off the list for a while so am trying again. I'm looking for John YOUNG & wife Nancy BROUSSARD. I find them in the New Iberia census in 1910. In 1920 Census Nancy is a widow. Nancy died in Beaumont Texas 18 April 1928 & on the DC it states she was born in 1872, in Lafayette They both are listed as "Negro". I’m trying to find any further information. Were they slaves? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Emily In Ohio ____________________________________________________________ Fast, Secure, NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband.

    1. Re: [LAIBERIA] BROUSSARD, Nancy
    2. Pat Fletcher
    3. Emily, The first thing that jumps out is that Nancy would not have been a slave if she was born in 1872. Following Lee's surrender and the end of the Civil War in April 1865, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified by 3/4 of the states on 6 Dec 1865. *Officially*, after that date, there was no more slavery in the U.S. (New Orleans and 13 named parishes of Louisiana, which were mostly under Federal control at the time of the Emancipation Proclamation, were exempted from it.) I would start looking for a birth certificate for Nancy in Louisiana. She does not show up in the Ancestry.com birth records from Orleans Parish, so you'll have to start with the State Registrar & Vital Records office <http://new.dhh.louisiana.gov/index.cfm/page/635>: 'Louisiana is a "closed record" state. This means that birth and death certificates are not public records. All requests for birth or death certificates must include proper identification.' [and how you are related to the person in question]. I've gotten records for my g-g-grandmother and her parents, so you should be able to get Nancy's birth certificate and possibly their marriage certificate.
