Thank you for your generous sharing of information. It is enormously helpful to a complete novice like me. I am beginning the search for my ancestors only today! My father, Maurice Antoine "Snook" Faucheux, b. 1911 (who added the "a" to our name for some reason when my brother and I were born) was one of eleven children born to Ursin (not positive of given name)and Jeanne Waguespack (not positive of surname). They lived in St. Rose, a town in St. Charles parish. My grandfather, my father and myself were all baptised at St. Charles Borromeo Church in Destrehan, La. My father's siblings were; Susan (m. Elfer?), Helen (who married Eddie Duhe), Maitland Sr.(who fathered 13 children and was a WW 1 vet), John, Roland,Irene, and a sister nicknamed "Pick" and "By", who lived to be at least 100, and may still live.
This is about all I know so far. I would appreciate any links to this information which might help me 'jumpstart' my search. Thank you sincerely, Verlin Faucheaux
