Hi Lorene
The word Cajun is a corruption of the word "Acadian". When the British expelled the French Acadians from Nova Scotia Canada in the early 1750's many made their way down to the southern states. If you want to know more about your Cajun roots check out the following websites. You have a rich and fascinating heritage.

Happy Hunting
