Note from AHA President and AG Editor, Jim Phillips: A big dream has come true – The Attakapas Gazette – from 1966 to the present – and all of its wealth of information regarding Acadiana – all the articles about the rich culture of the peoples of this area, and all the lists of records and genealogy – are now available online as a free digital service to the public. It can now be searched and pages and articles may be downloaded for free in standard formats from our new digital library on Archives.org. Professional and amateur researchers and writers and readers will love this service. And it is also a very stimulating library for personal interests in all things Acadiana.

I have been able to arrange to get help from an amazing young British literature teacher and lover of all things historically, artistically and culturally interesting. The Attakapas Gazette has fit her interests well. I want to thank Madeleine Goodall of Norwich, England for her diligence and hard work. I will be adding an interview I did with Madeleine – Maddy – to the next issue, which is coming soon.

Let’s get started. To begin, I am adding the alphabetical Content Index for your perusal. Take a moment to be amazed and inspired at the depth and breath of this living historical, cultural and genealogical archive. Click on this paragraph to see this stimulating list of all the articles and records in our early published A.G. 1966-1992

I have information about a number of NJ African Americans who were "Sold South" in 1818 and would like to find descendants. Do you have an email where I can send information? Also, if there are any local or regional groups that may be able to help, that would be great. Thank you.
