The Reverend Father Donald Joseph Hebert was born in 1942. He was ordained in 1968. It seems impossible to imagine trying to do genealogy in Louisiana without using something that he wrote. His first work was done in 1974 and his work on Acadians in southeast Texas was his 96th work.

A list of Rev. Hebert's works and copies of other obituaries is at the Hebert Publications site.

One well known work: Southwest Louisiana Records (1750-1900) is on a CD.[1]

Rev. Donald J. Hebert died in 2000 and was entombed at Assumption Cemetery, Mire, Louisiana. His memorial has two photos and a copy of his obituary.[2]

Father Hebert attended Immaculata Seminary in Lafayette, St. John Seminary in Little Rock, Ark., and graduated from Notre Dame in New Orleans in 1968. He was ordained June 1, 1968, in Lafayette.

He was an assistant pastor at St. Francis Regis in Arnaudville from 1968, until his assignment of assistant pastor in 1970, at St. Anthony in Eunice, until he became pastor of St. Joseph in Cecilia in 1975. In 1980, he became pastor of St. Anthony in Eunice until he became administrator of Annunciation in Duralde in 1984. In 1985, he was pastor of Our Lady Queen of All Saints in Ville Platte until he became pastor of Church of the Assumption BVM in Mire in 1989, until his death.
