Let reviewers tell you what they think about the online Attakapas Gazette:

“Fantastic for Genealogists:  I dove into the Attakapas Gazette, and have spent hours happily reading, or research my family tree. Well written articles that provide the source material is hard for me to find, but Attakapas Gazette provides both.”

“A treasure trove for Acadian/early American history buffs:  Not only is this is an invaluable resource for those of us wishing to take a deeper delve into the people and places that comprise our family origins, it’s also just really interesting stuff!”

Also, here are other resources going way back:
