Surname: Schexnayder, Schexnaydre, Schexnailder, Schexnaildre, Schexnaider,
Schexnaidre, Schexnyder, Schexnydre, Schexneyder, Schexneydre, Schexnider,
I am collecting genealogical information on the Schexnaydre, Schexnayder,
Schexnailder, Schexnaildre, Schexnyder, Schexnaider, Shexnidre, ________
(fill in your version) families. These families are descendants of Heinrich
Albert Schexnaydre who was a native of Brussels, Belgium and came to the
German Coast (St. Charles Parish) Louisiana in the early 1700s. There are
probably over 100 different variations of the name found in records today;
however, all Schexnaydres can trace their common ancestor to Heinrich (Henry)
Albert Schexnaydre and are therefore actually ONE family. Also the surname
of Albert was also used in some early records. Most of the descendants
today still live in South Louisiana (particularly in the River Parishes
between New Orleans & Baton Rouge) but the descendants can be found nationwide
and are quite numerous. Another large branch of the family moved westward
into Southwest Louisiana in the Acadiana region.
My attempt is to publish a book on this family and this is by no means
a small task. I welcome any help, tips, information, resources, or contacts
that you may be able to provide. I have already received some information
from some branches of our family, but I need as many as possible to help
my research. I would like to include everyone born with the Schexnayder/Schexnaydre/etc.
name and their children.
I am a member of the German-Acadian Coast Historical & Genealogical Society.
If your last name is Schexnaydre, Schexnayder, Schexnaildre, Schexnaider,
etc...(or if you're related to one) Please e-mail me at jayschexnaydre(a)att.net
, I want to hear from YOU! THANK YOU AND BEST OF LUCK!!!!

Yes, I know, but there are some Lassus and Demandre records there. There are
also Lyons records there from the mid -1870s to the mid -1880s. I guess it
is because St. Patrick Church was built later - maybe 1885 or '90.
I know Mass was celebrated in the area in private homes before the Church
was built, and some records must have been kept, but I can't find them. The
Archdiocesan Archives said there may have been little Chapels here and
there, but no records survived.
I can't find out where the Lyons babies born in Home Place were baptised
between 1866 and the mid -1870s when they started to be baptised at OLGH. Do
you have any ideas or suggestions where else to look?
Good to hear from you again!

My name is Gordon Bradberry and I am originally from Grand Isle, Louisiana. I
want to extend an invitation to every researcher who suspects that they have
family ties to Grand Isle to join family and friends of the island in my
"Jettytalk" chatroom on friday nights at 8:00 p.m. Its focus is the
history,genealogy, and folklore of Grand Isle. Some of the most common island
surnames are: BRADBERRY/SANTINY/BESSON/LAFONT/VERDON/GUIDRY/CHIGHIZOLA/
I look forward to talking to anyone interested in ties to our small island.
