Hi Craig-
If you'd like to start a discussion on your Walpool/Walpole families, just add a discussion, so we can see the information your already have and keep our responses in the same place. :)

Hello group. I'm new to Genealogywise, so, I'm trying to find where everything is here. I am researching Southwest Louisiana parishes of Lafayette, St. Martin, St. Landry, and Iberia Parish surnames of MERCIER, WILTZ, ESCLAVON, DeCLOUET, MASSE, GREGOIRE, JEAN LOUIS, SHAY (CHAIX), GUIDRY, BASILE (CHIASSON), BARRAS, LeMELLE, LeBLANC, GUILLUAME, HENRY, and SIMON. Most of them were free people of color.

Also researching Louisiana old West Florida Parishes of East Baton Rouge, Livingston, East and West Feliciana surnames of FORBES (f.p.o.c.), DUNN (f.p.o.c.), CARTER, SCOTT, DeARMOND, EVANS, RICKS, BROWN, GAINES, CURRY, PATTERSON and ANDREWS.

I left out the URL to the The Red River Sankofa Project

I've just come across one of the most helpful websites I've ever visited: it's called the Red River Sankofa project--it describes itself as follows:

The Red River Sankofa Project is committed to connecting and honoring our ancestral ties to NW Louisiana and NE Texas by focusing on burial ground preservation. This rather remote, but bountiful area along the upper Red River of Louisiana and along the Texas Louisiana border has long been forgotten in historical text therefore we are dedicated towards sharing the rich stories and contributions of our African American ancestors who settled the area.

Regardless of your background, if you have roots in NW Louisiana, you'll find something useful here,

I'm trying to locate information about an African-American family named WALPOOL or WALPOLE in Caddo and Bossier parishes, 1870-1910.

If you have a discussion topic with a parish or county location in Louisiana, you could put the parish or county in the subject line in the DISCUSSION FORUM above and it will make it easier to find for those researching in your area of interest. If there is not a heading for your parish or county, add "start discussion" with the button at left bottom.

All other discussions are appropriate to add to the "Comment Wall" below.
