If you are serious about Acadian-Cajun genealogy then you need to have it in your software library. It is not primary or secondary data, but it will probably help you to find those lines that have had you stuck. If you had a name that doesn't appear in your lineage till you get back to 1700, you probably didn't spend a lot of time on it. Well, that might be the focus of someone else's work. But remember, don't change your data till you check their sources. -- Tim Hebert's acadian-cajun web site, August 1999
The CD contains a vast amount of information on Acadian and Cajun ancestors...
This is more than just a database. The CD comes ready to use, complete with it's own software which is lineage linked. You need nothing other than this CD to use, display and print individual or family information from your PC/printer.
Search the database to find a person you are interested in, display or print charts of ancestry, descendants, family groups and more. You can also clip bits or whole sections out of the data base, export it as a GEDCOM file and then either use it alone or import it into your family records in any popular genealogical software.
Another thumbs up for Progeny Software! This information CD and it's operating software makes an extremely sound package. Big points are deserved for producing the CD as a stand-alone product, and even more points for making it intuitive and easy to use. -- Global Gazette, July 27, 1999
