Is anyone else interested in Acadian / Cajun roots? My mother is a full-blooded Cajun, and I was born in Lafourche Parish, so I have been fascinated with my French-Acadian heritage. One of the best things about researching Acadian genealogy is that there are SO MANY resources! They took censuses in the 1600s, Nova Scotia has baptism, burial, and marriage records (with original images) from the first half of the 18th century in Port Royal, and there are even ship manifests that show the exiles and their destinations.
