Adding Some Cajun Spice

I'm now a "friend" with Louisiana Genealogy Blogs on Facebook. Some are probably thinking, "Huh? There's no Louisiana in this blog."

I know I've spent a lot of time in Arkansas with the Williamsons, but I actually do have a big stake in Louisiana.

My maternal grandfather's family is from Louisiana. The surnames I'm searching there are Thibodeaux, Bourgaux/Bourgeaux/Borgaux, and Menou. They mostly settled in Acadia Parish in the Rayne and Iota areas. Earlier, this area was known as St. Landry Parish.

I will get around to posting more about this branch of the family, but until then I just wanted to explain why this qualifies as a Louisiana Genealogy Blog.
