     In 1990, an Acadian-Cajun Genealogical Periodical Article Index was published. It indexes over 5000 articles in over 20 publications. The index can be found at many of the south Louisiana libraries, and it may still be purchased from the author.  It is also online at Acadian-Cajun Genealogy & History.  An updated edition including the years from 1990 to 2000 is due out soon.
