|This page is divided
into three sections. It will discuss how to work on Cajun Genealogy in
three time periods.
The Cajun people claim the Acadians as their namesake, but also contain
elements of several nationalities. The foundation of the culture came from
Acadia. As they spent time in Louisiana, other nationalities were incorporated.
Here is a brief attempt at explaining where to look for information. More
information can be found in the book, Acadian-Cajun
Genealogy: Step by Step, which is discussed in more detail elsewhere
at this site.
