We have strong ancestral links to Louisiana through many family lines. Currently we are researching our REMONDET family links and it starts with our great-great-great-grandparents: Madelaine Clara Remondet (b. 1819, St. James Parish) married Pierre Paul Bethancourt (b. 1801, St. John the Baptist Parish). We are trying to find out more on our Remondet ancestors and back to Bourgogne in France. We have the Remondet line going back to our 6th great-grandparents who were, Joseph Remondet (born 1710 in Bourgogne, France) and Marie Victoire (born 1715 in Bourgogne, France). Any historical or other information would be appreciated and if you are related to us then please get in touch. [query posted online 3/13/2015]

I am the (4x) great-granddaughter of Jean Baptiste PAQUET. He was a free man of color whose residence was the German Coast in 1850. He was 80 years old at that time. I have been researching my family for about 10 years due to my unique look when comparing resemblance to any of my family members. I don't look like anyone. I am a very light skinned, green eyes African American from New Orleans, La. I am seeking additional assistance to continue researching the Paquet family. I can't find whom J.B. PAQUET had children with. I know some of their names were: Honoré, Ursin, Sandville, Cleophas, and Gelonise PAQUET. I also need guidance through learning how to find JB PAQUET's parents. I am young and I would really appreciate any knowledge (wisdom) you can help to direct me onto the proper road. Thanks [query posted online 11/22/2014]
