I am interested in finding all I can about the SIMON and WAGUESPACK families. My grandson is Edmond Joseph SIMON, V. I've worked on my own family tree for years and now I'm working on my grandson's. I'm wondering if you know of someone who may created a book? I'm finding plenty online but I thought maybe someone could save me the time of putting together so much info.

I am looking for information about the parents of Aristide PICOU. He had a brother Peter PICOU. He was also married to Nathalie CHEVALIER. My father found a handwritten family tree that has Antoine PICOU and Octavia FERRAN as his parents but some of the info on the tree was inaccurate. Any info would be appreciated.

According to information provided to me by my wife's uncle, she is a descendant of Karl D'ARENSBOURG (1693-1777), whose great-granddaughter Philimine D'ARENSBOURG married Charles DE LA TOUR about 1810 in New Orleans. I have not been able to confirm the heritage link between Karl & Philimine D'ARENSBOURG, nor the birth/marriage/death of the persons Philimine D'ARENSBOURG or Charles DE LA TOUR. I have information on a daughter Marie Augustine Poupone DE LA TOUR born to them in Orleans Parish in 1812 but nothing more. I am looking to document the ancestral link from Karl D'ARENSOUBRG to Philimine, her marriage to Charles DE LA TOUR, and the ancestry of Charles DE LA TOUR [query posted online 5/23/2014]

I am looing to find when my ancestor Marie Arcene ST. CYR met and married Numa CHATELLIER. Based on other ancestry trees, Marie Arcene ST. CYR was born in St. James Parish. She came to Madisonville, St. Tammany with her husband Numa CHATELLIER in approx. 1844. This was the first CHATELLIER and my 3rd great grandparents. Numa died in 1870 and Marie died in 1879 both in St. Tammany. Her brother Joseph ST. CYR married Azurine BORNE from St. John the Baptist Parish. I am new at genealogy and have hit a roadblock trying to validate when and where Numa met Marie. Any help or advice would be helpful. [query posted online 9/15/2013]
