There are many good 'How-To' books on genealogy. But genealogy is a large field of study. Each nationality, culture, locality, etc. has its own particular types of information and research methods. Everyone knows of the recent popularity of things known as 'Cajun' ... food, music, and so on. The Cajun people are a rather distinct culture based in south Louisiana. And there are many 'displaced Cajuns' who have moved into other parts of the country. This book addresses the genealogy of the Cajun people in Louisiana. It also goes back, through the Exile of the mid 1700's, to the original Acadians in Canada. It will assist you in tracing your Acadian-Cajun ancestry back to the 1600's with as little trouble as possible.
