AfriGeneas States Research Forum

[LA] Louisiane: from France's Ministry of Culture

Greetings Afrigeneas Louisiana Researchers:

I just returned from a two-week trip to Paris. I found many historical connections between the Americas and France, which I hope to share with Afrigeneas. The archives in Paris house an incredible resource of documents pertaining to France in the Americas. The URL will take you "Louisiane" presented by the French Ministry of Culture.

The website is beautifully presented with interactive maps including one of New Orleans and links to original documents. It also offers historical resources for further research about Louisiana and its territories to the North.

Enjoy Louisiane.

I also posted a recent link to "France in America" on the Afrigeneas Free People of Color Forum. The presentation is a collaborative effort between the Library of Congress and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. It reminds us that the history of France in the US and possible links to our family history can be uncovered in states like Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.

Best regards,

K Wyer Lane
