de l'eau. Translation of the waters. As near as I can tell right now, my family has been on or near the water since leaving France. Many times completely surrounded by H2o. Many of us today can attribute are love for farming, fishing and trapping to our Acadien ancestors. Talk about sticking to something your good at.
I am very thankful for the skills embedded into my soul from those who were so good at it. I was the only kid on the block who could trap a rabbit in a box or trap a muskrat and skin and cook it up just right. The fixins' for a full course meal are all around if you just take the time and look for them. I'll bet very few people know that most vegitables like carrots and ruhbarb or even spices like garlic and onions grow wild. Think about it for a minute. Do you think that some man or woman invented the potatoe? Nope, someone just happen to be digging around in the right spot and found it. Even coffee was an accidental find. Don't believe me look it up on your computer and you will find a tale about a couple of men camping out somewhere when one of the men through some beans into a fire for some reason or another.
Anyways, this site is here mostly as a starting point for others to begin their own research. I am in the process of sourcing everything out those sources are and will be posted as they are found. Links within this site will pertain to the family and its branches as well as many USEFUl links to help others in their quests. If you find something here or on any other web site be sure to verify the facts for yourself. Even with sources there is room for human error.
