Genealogy book examines Johnson family

Yvon Cyr reviews Phil Johnson’s Acadiana genealogy book, Guillaume (Billy) Johnson: His Story, Our History ($24.95), on his Canadian-Louisiana Web site, www.acadian.org. The softcover book has many photos, diagrams and charts “to give the reader an up close and personal look at the Acadian way of life, as well as covering the genealogy of the Johnson Acadian family,” Cyr writes.
Billy was the son of a Scotsman who was part of the occupying forces at Port Royal, Acadie (later Nova Scotia), and an Acadian woman named Isabelle Corporon. “Not only has the author captured the Johnson family heritage in story form, he has included all reference sources to aid other genealogy researchers in their quest for factual documentation relating to the Acadians, and to this particular branch of Acadian Johnsons,” Cyr writes in his online review. for more click here
