History remembers only the celebrated, genealogy remembers them all.
The Lafayette Genealogical Society is a not for profit society. Our mission is to encourage an interest in all family history; as well as collect, preserve and make available Attakapas area history. This includes the Parishes of Lafayette, St. Martin, St. Mary, Acadia, Vermilion, Evangeline and Iberia.
We're all immortal, as long as our stories are told.
