My grandfather instilled in me the love for family history. He always said it was important to know where we came from because like the saying, Without the Past, There is No Future.

My family is one of the oldest families on the Gulf Coast. They came in 1699 from Canada with D'Iberville. We have a rich and fantastic heritage here on the Coast. One worth remembering and sharing.

I have dedicated well over 20 years in researching the families of the Coast including, Saucier, Ladner, Morin/Moran, Cuevas, Nicaise/Necaise, Dedeaux, Dubuisson, and many others.

Thanks Michelle. I have been busy growing my tree from previously gained knowledge and now am updating the sources to complete the records ). I am uncertain whether I can use G2G to ask for help tho (I am still 6 weeks new and don't know if you need to be a certain 'level' to use?) and would love to learn how I can work with others to extend my paternal line, which I have hit brick walls with as my GGrandfather was born in County Roscommon, Ireland 1864 and I can find little. Any help to progression/teamworking would be gratefully rec'd ). Cheers

Hi, Michelle. Thanks for checking. I've been in contact with someone on here with a common ancestor. Currently I'm working on syncing another website with a genealogy program, so I haven't had much time to look around on here. Once that is done, I'll check back here. Cheers!!

Hi Michelle, thanks for checking. I have been working on my maternal grandfather's profile. He is absolutely the best sourced person I have. Also one of the first persons I collected data on, before his death. I didn't know much about genealogy research back then, partly as a result the bio created from the GEDCOM import is pretty ugly. I'm working through the sources, putting them in WikiTree format and I think the bio will be quite readable when I'm done.

After having done some work I noticed that his birth name is Klut not Klute. Rather than change in mid-stream, I plan to finish cleaning up the bio then go through the process of changing the birth name to Klut. Is that the best approach?

Hi Michelle, Thanks for checking in with me. I have been very busy with personal, church and family matters and don't have time to learn the system right now.. I have been researching my family for over ten years now and have used state archives, courthouse records and town records as well as internet sites. I will contact you later when things settle down.

This there anyway on here to find DNA matches on here? Like find cousins or something?

I've uploaded DNA for my dad, mom, brother and me and I can't figure out where to find anyone who matches with our DNA.

Thank you.
