For an easy history lesson, tracing the exploration and development of the Pointe-aux-Chênes/Pointe au Chien** and Isle à Jean Charles area, visit the Timeline section. There you will find a link to the website for the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw indians. For the full experience, get online, first.

For beginning genealogists, we have the Tips area, with some forms, advice, and links for further searching.

Lastly, we included a page to help you contact us with questions and suggestions.

Thanks to all the individuals who helped put this work together.
Thanks to Bruce LeBoeuf who scanned all 466 pages, one by one, after helping to decide the format, etc., of the files.
Special thanks to Audrey Barnes Westerman CGRS, who used her many talents to research the Native American population of Pointe au Chien and Isle de Jean Charles to contribute to the Genealogy and Timeline sections.
Thanks to Jess Bergeron who had done a considerable amount of research to correct and add to Miss Ledet's family pages.
Thanks to Chantel Ellender for many recent photographs and updated family information. Click here for a selection of pictures.
I want to specially thank my wife, Gloria Gravois Hicks for all her help, encouragement, and patience during the two or more years I took to finish this project. The places where she influenced the final output are too numerous to mention, here.
**Note: the name of the area is a bone of contention to a number of people, not the least of whom was Miss Ledet, herself. See her obituary, here.
Thanks to Marcie and Essie Cavalier who took the last photographs of Miss Ledet and saved the obituary.

In one of the last known photographs of her, Laïse is shown with the bed which was hand made by her grandfather Ledet. Read the story on pages 342, 343, and 344
