I would like to suggest that another book be added to the resources that is on the Acadians Project Resource list: "The Genealogy of an Acadian and Cajun Family" by Michael B. Melanson. This was helpful in finding a source for the first unsourced profile list name I tried - Marie Adelina (sic) Elisabeth (sic) Melancon Melancon-69 Marie Adelina Elizabeth Melancon (1836-aft.1881). This led to me creating more profiles for her parents and her mother's parents and I expect to have to make profiles for 9 of her siblings. I haven't got that far yet.

Thanks for pointing it out. We'll work on that as we get the other one closer to completion.
This page probably needs to be merged with the other one we're working on.
