I just found this site, and I'm stunned at the wonderful searchable census pages. Becuase of how poorly the census takers spelled the names, I've been spending hours trying to search for people on Ancestry.com, and they're so easy to find here.

I don't see a lot of people active here now and I don't know why, because this is a genealogy gold mine.

Thank you SO much for doing all this work for us to use.

Linda

You bet I will! I used to have a pretty big French-Canadian/Acadian genealogy site back 15 years ago, but I lost the ability to update it when I closed my CompuServe account, and then I didn't have time for any genealogy for about 10 years. Now I'm getting the bug again, and I want to update my pages on a new site but it will take some time, as I also lost all my data when I moved and an old computer got thrown away when I wasn't looking.

But I do have at least some information from my old site, including huge pages for Babin, Gagnon, Vaillancourt, and Plourde, and I posted a link to your site from my Resources page. You're actually the only current resource listed, but hey, it's a start!
