Donna Friebel was born in 1962. Her mother was Susan Gallier[1][2] and her father was Leroy Friebel. [3][4][5][6] My paternal grandfather came from Germany in 1884 to Texas and wed the daughter of another German immigrant in 1890. My maternal ancestors were primarily Acadians who ended up in Louisiana following the devastating deportations of the Acadians in Nova Scotia by the British during the Seven Year War. Some came to Louisiana from their exile in the British Colonies, while others came from their exile in France some twenty years after their deportation to Europe.

So my ancestry interests include Germany, France, Acadia, Quebecois (French-Canadian), Louisiana, and Texas. I live about 2000 miles away from there now so my local libraries don't include many genealogy sources for them. Therefore, I've purchased a number of reference books and can look up information here and will add citations to relevant wikitree profiles, regardless of my own relation to the person.

Wanted to let you know I wanted to fix a typo on your Orange County, Texas page, and ended up doing several minor edits. There is no place on free space pages to explain changes, so wanted to 'fess up so as not to be accused of hit-and-run. I know the page is a work in progress, but I'm somewhat compulsive about editing, so I did a fair amount that you would have done eventually. I hope you don't mind. Left this message on Mary's page as well. Cheers!
