Historical Documents


As some of you may know, documents posted to the Acadia Parish Archives are supposed to be in plain text format.  I am unaware of any such limitation as it relates to posting to the Acadia Parish Genealogy web site.  So, let's work together to make this site more interesting by contributing and posting copies of some of our original documentation uncovered during the course of our family research.
I will post graphics and documents related to Acadia Parish and its inhabitants on this site, so long as they are not in plain text format and apply to Acadia Parish and its inhabitants.  If, however, the document is believed to be protected by copyright or if it is readily available on another site (e.g., land grants), it will not be posted here.  I will do what I can to link to those documents, if they are available elsewhere on the Internet.
I have a small backlog of documents furnished by Jerry ROYER that I will be working on.  Seems a hundred years ago that he sent them to me and he has waited patiently while I try to get up on the learning curve. Thanks Jerry for your contribution and your patience.
