  1. I love the research that goes into the articles posted on the website. I want nothing more than to continue learning more about my heritage and proudly teaching others of the Creole contribution and experience. It’s certainly apropos to appreciate the great variety of persons within the fabric of American color. Thank You!

  2. Bonjour Mrs. Coubarous!

    We don’t have anything at present on the Colored Industrial and Normal School (Gaudet School), but we are aware of the incredible Mrs. Frances T. Gaudet. This is on our long, long list of future blog topics! As they say in Creole – Petit a petit l’oiseau fait son nid “Little by little the bird makes his nest” You can read her autobiography He Leadeth Me, which is widely available in libraries. Thanks for reading!

  3. Hello,
    Thank You for adding me on. I would like to know if you have any information on the other Charles family members:
    Alcida Charles, Aristide Charles, Bienville Charles, Praxile Charles, Mary Cora Charles, Celestine Charles.

  4. Thank you – my grandmother Clea Desdunes was the niece of Rudolphe Desdunes, his son was Daniel Desdunes. Always wanted to know more of Straight University. I had discovered his name on registration records when I prepared an ancestry file for the family.

    I will contribute to your organization. Periodically I return to New Orleans – now having a vacation home Uptown to enjoy all that is historical. I left in 1955 but always have returned home.
