Thanks so much for your info. So much water has passed under the bridge since I first posted that message. I have been to several Los Islenos festivals and was able to get
some info on my direct line, which you are correct in that we are distant cousins. Miguel's father was Roberto
Claudo Assevedo and his mother was Virginia Gonzales.
Miguel married Marie Martinez before moving to Biloxi, Ms.
in St. Bernard. I am trying to trace that family line blindly. No one left alive to help. Is there any genealogy groups left in St. Bernard since Katrina, or perhaps you know of some web sites that could help for that area.
thanks again, cindy knotts
