Creole History

History of the Creoles in Louisiana

The first white settlers of Louisiana were French, usually the second born sons of aristocrats who left France to seek adventure in the New World. They brought their traditional style of cooking from the continent, and being rich aristocrats, they also brought along their chefs as well! These Frenchmen came to be called Creoles, and made up the upper crust of New Orleans. Their descendants can still be found in the French Quarter today. This manuscript takes a look at the history of this unique group of people.

Louisiana Genealogy is being developed as a genealogical and historical resource for your personal use. While the original thought was to provide this website as a resource for finding genealogy and historical data concerning Louisiana on the web, we have begun adding specific data to this site for your personal use.

The “Search Louisiana Genealogy” search on the right side will search all of the Louisiana Genealogy website, but will not search the data linked to from our offsite data pages.
