One point there is no Jean-Claude Landry.There was a Jean Claude amerindian whose Acadian widow lived between two Landry in a census.
A "expert" put Landry after his name. And we have been trying to correct ever since.
It was actually her grandaughter from an earlier marriage that lived nearby.
Second everbody is welcome to join if the share our ancestry or even share our records.

I've sent the following bulk mail out to the Landry men in our group:
Hello Landry participants of theAcadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA Project! Hope you're doing well and arein good health!
Paul LeBlanc (pleblan(a)aim.com),whom many may know from his years of research of our Acadian genealogies,has reached out to me to let me know he is interested in finding out more aboutmale descendants of founder Landry lines. Most Acadian families have one malefounder (we also have one pair of known brothers).
We have not one but two Acadian Landry founders (1) Rene the elder L’aine (abt1618- 1678 to 1686) & (2) Rene the younger Le Jeune ( abt 1634 - before1693).
We do not know if the founders were related. No surviving dispensations mentionboth of them when descendants married.
Paul is interested in finding out which Rene Landry male descendants, who havehad the Y DNA tests, trace back to -- for descendants of the two Rene's and fordescendants of Jean-Claude Landry as well. We know of three unrelated Landryfamilies in Louisiana and your matching Y DNA test results, which you haveamong members in this group, may help answer questions about these lineages.
If you have Y DNA, Landry surnamematches through Family Tree DNA, who are not already members of this project,please encourage them to join the Acadian Amerindian Ancestry DNA project sothat it will be easier to discover relationships among descendants of thedifferent Landry lines and for participants to make contact and shareinformation about this line. Please help us get the word out about our interest in male, father to father (surname) descendants of this line. Project admins will be happy to answerquestions about how to join.
Paul also invites male (father-to-father)descendants of these lines to join his Acadian Roots web list. You'llfind his email address earlier in the email should you wish to contact himdirectly. Here's the link where you may join the list:https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/acadian.rootsweb.com/

Does anyone know the parents of Aurelien Miller who m. in Opelousas, 23 Jan
1879, to Marie Zelphie Gatte, daughter of Christophe Gatte and Cidalise
Trahan? I've got a couple of Aureliens of the right age, but not sure
which (if any of them) this is.
Looking for parents (and grandparents) of Noida Landry, b. (according to
gravestone) 11 Jun 1901, probably in or near Youngsville (where her husband
Edias Boudreaux was from). She's on the 1910 census of Lafayette Parish
with her father Emile (b. ca. 1870) and his wife Cora (b. ca. 1886) who i
suspect was a second wife, and not Noida's mother, because of her (Cora's)
I can't find any records of them, and was wondering if anyone knows who
this family is?
Please hit REPLY ALL so the discussion goes to all three list.
Happy Thanksgiving day to Northern cousins..

Anyone need our turkey frying or stuffed Mirliton recipes? (Chayote squash in Spanish groceries.)

Looking for any record of Elezida Blanchard, the third wife of Alphonse
Boutte (b. 1840, s/o Joseph Zenon Boutte and Julie Celima Bonin). I
estimate her birth year as 1855 (from the 1900 census) and estimate their
marriage as some time in the early 1870s.
She may have been from near Loreauville.
Any help would be appreciated!

White of course is LeBlanc
Have you figured out how close you are to Stephen?
I think his family is from across CB from Cheticamp.

Hello Cousins, :)
I am new to this group. My name is Claudine Purdue. My Maternal Grandma, Amelia White, that raised me was descended from Acadia on both sides of her family. We also recently discovered that there was quite a bit of Mikmaq Indian in her family, as well. She grew up in Stephenville, Newfoundland and the land the airport sits on till this day, was the land her family once owned. Stephen Leblanc and or Stephen Gallant (depending on whom you speak to) settled the town back in the 1840s. Both are Grandfathers, lol.
They came from Cheticamp, NS and the Margaree Valley. I can trace my lineage back to Daniel Leblanc and am from his son, Rene Leblanc. I also have Aucoin, Landry, Gallant, Gaudet, Cormier, Bourgeois, Guidry, Hebert, Marche and others. I have recently learned,over past two-three years,so much more details Re the deportation and he aftermath, and just how strong a people we all come from. I also volunteer at the French Canadian genealogy library in CT.
Very proud to be part of this group, nice to meet you all!
