Please share any Dr. Don stories
Some Quick notes.
The president of the Northern association was also a Donald Landry
Don was the Southern Expert on the Family. Anyone got an email for Andre the Northern researcher.
Both he & Andre helped me find the most likely candidate for the one "bastard" in my tree back to the founding of Acadie. He was born during exile en France. He had a Landry mother & we believe his father was also a seaman Landry. (Now that many French records are online I need to get additional documentation on that family)
Don was the first researcher I met face-to-face.
His office was between one quarter and two miles from my different apartments.
During the flood after Katrina, for Kenner reports, when when they did not show the air port the stations showed the shopping center next to his office.
Don was involved in the family association.
He helped organize the Landry family reunion at CMA1999
Don was involved in the Landry family association.
He was the person who gave me my dit name of Jean-Claude Landry because of my work trying to kill the legend of Jean-Claude.
He was a major contributor in the (now closed) Landrystuff website.
