Editorial Reviews


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

From the Publisher

With over 600,000 lineage-linked records on one, easily searchable CD, the Acadian-Cajun Family Trees CD is an important research resource for anyone doing Acadian-Cajun research. Anyone with Acadian roots has an excellent chance of finding ancestral clues that can shed light on informational gaps in their genealogy database.

We know of no other single source where anyone can access a comparable number of Acadian-Cajun descendant records.

Anyone researching Acadian names can soon find themselves lost in the myriad of identical names they come across wherever they search. Ie LeBlanc in Acadian research is as common as looking for "Smith". (Some 14000 + on this CD) The first thing you see is a list of names. Entering surname and given, "Charles LeBlanc" filled several pages. I was happy to see I could change the list view from Name and number to name and dates, spouses, or parents. This helped to narrow things down. Then I tried the search function. What a find! I searched on "Place Contains" various towns. While using it, I was surprised to find several hits on my hometown. The results showed deaths as recent as 1994. One of these was for the son of an acquaintance of mine. I was unaware of a son and was very touched. A search on "Notes Contains" revealed some very intersting notes made by some of the reasearchers who contributed the data for the CD. I also had option to display a family group view, ancestors, decendants and print many charts and reports. I have been researching my British roots for some years now, and am looking forward to using this CD to supplement my Acadian research. The information varies from names only for living persons to detailed notes for others. Using this tool, I will be able to better focus my research trips. I wish I had a CD like this when I began my British/Colonial American research!

The Yvon Cyr CD is a very well packaged and usable resource. Accessing the data on the CD is a trivial task with the many different tools provided with the data. An enormous amount of information is provided; a lot of the individual's entries are duplications within the CD, obviously because of the origins of the data. You must look at every reference however, since each submission Yvon Cyr received was understandably not merged in with the existing data. The next entry might provide that bridge you we're looking to confirm. Or it will extend your tree in a direction you didn't know existed.

Warning, This product will not work on Windows 7 or 8. (I know the product description does not list them, hence 2 stars not 1, but at this point in time a warning should be posted)

I have a windows 95 lap top I will dig out. I might raise the rating when I get it installed there.
