Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a student at Nicholls State University and I have an
assignment to find out what was served at the dinners(rumor has it that
there were 3) associated with the signing of the Lousiana Purchase in
1803. I know that the signing took place at the Cabildo, but I am having
a difficult time finding information surrounding the events.
If information is not available on the dinners, I can also provide
information about the types of food typically served during the time and
the types of flowers and foliage that would be used for decoration.
I would appreciate any information that you could provide and
possible resources that I could check.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

I've placed my family GEDCOM file on the WorldConnect Project allowing
Uploads of my data. My notes and sources have also been included. Because
there is so much information on the Zachary family and other families in and
around St Helena and St. Tammany Parish, I thought you may want to let the
various list know. It can be accessed at
The file has about 7200 individuals. I'll be making period updates as I
collect more families.
