Hello Rashaan.

I have read many of your postings, and I wish I had the information that you are looking for. I'm not embarassed or ashamed to have Creole cousins, and I am very sorry if others have made you feel unwelcome. However, please don't believe that just because no one has answered your posts, that means no one cares or wants to include you. I have posted many times to many different forums over the last year and half, and I have only received replies to about half of those. That's because there are hundreds of thousands of us descendants of Acadians. Maybe the person who knows the answers to your questions hasn't seen your postings yet. Maybe the person who knows the answers doesn't own a computer. As far as I know, no one has done a complete mapping of all descendents of all Acadians (at least no further then 1720, where Stephen White left off). My genealogy db has 6000+ individuals in it, and in all the research I've done, I've still never run across your ancestors.

Keep trying and be patient, and eventually you'll be able to find a person or a record somewhere that has the information that you've been looking for. I would recommend lookng in Father Hebert's books, or writing to the parish courthouse or parish churches to see if they have any information.

Good luck with your search, and welcome to the family.

Sincerely,
Karen
