All Cajuns are related!

This site is devoted to every aspect of Acadian/Cajun history and genealogy.

If you enter this site from another website and the Table of Contents in the frame to the left does not appear, go to www.acadiansingray.com directly, and the Contents from should appear.

Here's a trick Cousin Anna shared with me about searching for names on the pages of this website.  No matter which browser you use--Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome--just hit Ctrl-F on your keyboard, and a window will appear at the top of the page, allowing you to search for whatever you desire within that page.

"The Acadians of Louisiana:  A Synthesis," which has become the central focus of this website, now contains twelve "books," including a new one--Book Eleven--focusing on non-Acadian families of South Louisiana.  I am going through the Acadian/Cajun Marriage Study I completed a few years ago to see which non-Acadian families intermarried most with their Acadian neighbors.  The histories of these polyglot Louisiana families--dozens of them--will be found in Book Eleven as soon as I can determine which of them go there.  For an alpha list of South Louisiana families, Acadian and non-Acadian, found in the Marriage Study, see the Family Names Worksheet, which can be accessed via the Contents frame to the left. sac
