Format: Paperback
Gilbert C. Din's The Canary Islanders of Louisiana, describes, in excruciating detail, the history of the Canary Islanders of south Louisiana from 1778 to the present day. If you want to know how many teachers there were in St. Bernard Parish in 1925, then this is your book. Despite his obsession with trivial detail, Din still mangages to provide the layman and scholar alike with a sound history of an obscure people. The appendix contains the surviving ships' passenger lists of Canary Islanders sailing to Louisiana from 1778 to 1783. This fact alone makes the book invaluable to those seeking their Canary Islander roots. Keeping the above reservations in mind, this book is a must for anyone curious about the origins and history of this heretofore unknown people.

This is specialized information. I used it to verify the emigration of some of my husband's ancestors from the Canary Islands to Louisiana in the late 1700s. It's fascinating look at a time not well documented. Was useful to me, and those interested in the early history of Louisiana would find it so—though it is a bit dry—as it is gleaned from historical documents. Still provides some enlightening detail into the lives of early Cajuns and Spanish colonists who wound up integrating and intermarrying to make up the Cajuns of Acadianna we see today.

It is well sourced, and I felt was accurate too—for those doing research. My only beef was: it could have been longer!

Excellent study of the immigrants from the Canary Islands: why and how they came to Lousiana, where they were allowed to settle, and what happened at each of the four places. More recent story is best available coverage, but could be more. Helps genealogists go beyond names and dates. More comprehensive index would help in that, but genealogy is not the focus of this book, the long term cultural story is the focus. It omits the Plaquemines Parish Nunez dynasty, but that's another whole book.

Since my family came from the Canary Islands (Dominguez), I really enjoyed learning about my ancestors. Thank you for writing this book!
