>Searching the Acadian Memorial Wall Online

>St. Michaels cemetery posted surnames of those interred in a public notice earlier this month both published in Teche News, from The Cajuns website, and The Daily Iberian. The issue of removing tombstones from the cemetery is a hot one. A preliminary search for a few of the surnames from the notice at the Acadian Memorial website produced these results:

Babin

Babineau dit Des Lauriers

Babineaux, Babinot, Babineau

Bernard

Albert

Dugas

Potier

The first group and second group of names that appeared in the public notice were used to conduct a search of the Acadian Memorial without utilizing an alternate spelling of the name. From that website: “This database contains a list of surnames and alternate spellings.The family names, or “surnames” in this database all come from the original French spellings. These names are all inscribed on the Wall of Names at the Acadian Memorial.”
