ACADIAN/CAJUN SURNAMES

These are the families who were exiled from Acadia, found refuge in Louisiana, and created the Cajun culture.  
(The families highlighted in yellow are the ones who produced Acadians in Gray; the families not highlighted in yellow and have no links attached to their names produced no Acadians in Gray; the families who are not highlighted in yellow but do have links attached to their names did produce soldiers for the Southern Confederacy, but, because the Acadian branch of these families produced no surviving male lines in Louisiana, the members of this family in the Bayou State are not of Acadian ancestry and are linked to the non-Acadian section of this page.)

NON-ACADIAN CAJUN SURNAMES

These are the families who assimilated with the Acadian exiles in Louisiana, helped create the Cajun culture, and produced soldiers for the Southern Confederacy.

Symbols:

            #      =     non-Acadian families who came to LA with the Acadians in 1785 [see 7 Ships Passenger List]

652

These family names can be found in greater Acadia from the 1630s to the 1750s.  However, members of these Acadian families did not emigrate to Louisiana, 
or members of these families did emigrate to Louisiana but produced no surviving male lines there, hence the link from the list of "Acadian/Cajun surnames" above.

These are Louisiana families whose members did not live in greater Acadia between the 1630s and the 1750s.  Members of these families may consider themselves to be "Cajun" because of intermarriage or cultural affinity with Louisiana Acadians.  In some cases, however, members of these families to this day refuse to be called "Cajun."
