Real Cajun Night Before Christmas when Santa almost passed toys ‘wit his unda’ware! Delightful Cajun story wri’t, draw’d and tol’ in Cajun dialect by mystery author rarely seen in public! Mostly because he is a Louisiana Super Hereaux and spends his time battling truth, justice and the Cajun Way!
Tee Jules (Jules d’Hemecourt IV) here recites his “Cajun 12 days of Christmas”. Mr d’Hemecourt JUST passed away as I post this on 02.12.2008. In His memory I post this for people to hear. Clip is taken from his video, “Cajun Night before Christmas”.

MSS-009-The Drouin Collection
Blue Drouin, Red Drouin, Big Drouin, Little Drouin, Male Drouin, and Female Drouin. Is this a children’s rhyme?? No, Sandra Goodwin explains it all. Most good genealogy libraries have some or all of these volumes in their possession. It’s important to know about these important books.
René Jetté (born Joseph Jean-Pierre Marcel René Jetté at Saint-Hyacinthe , the 3 May 1944 – died in palliative care in Beloeil on 18 May 2003 ) is a professor , historian , demographer and one of the most famous genealogists Quebec. Started in 1960 and published in 1983 , the dictionary has become a reference for historians. Once again, Sandra Goodwin offers a great assessment of this dictionary for French Canadian genealogists.
