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 for the offer to help, I will probably be requesting some assistance soon. Once I figure out what I am doing. How do I find out if I have relatives already on this site?

The only snag I seem to have run into so far is that somebody seems to have already created profiles for some of my great-grandparents, but the profiles are not open and the profile manager isn't responding to my requests to add me to the trusted list. Is there something I can do about this?

I've spent last 3 years on Ancestry.com, needed a break and found this site. Got to admit still finding it a bit daunting but will persevere, and hopefully find the break I'm searching for. Learning all the while so looking forward to familiarizing myself with how everything works. Cheers Mick
