About me

Location Southern California
Introduction I'm a Southwest Louisiana native and Cajun "expatriate" exploring a multiplicity of heritages, all of which improbably converged in Louisiana. I enjoy sharing genealogy tips, finds and family stories. Questions, corrections or additions welcome: hallroots (at) sbcglobal (dot) net.

My heritage includes British Isles ancestry through my N. La. ancestors; Cajun, French-Canadian, & Irish ancestry through my S. La. ancestors; and French, French-Canadian & a bit of German ancestry through my Colonial New Orleans, Mobile, & French Illinois ancestors.
