More about Legacy Legion

  • The Legacy Legion is comprised of patron level donors ($100) who support LA Creole’s mission to advance family research, provide education and celebrate Creole culture.

  • Through the Legacy Legion, LA Creole recognizes ancestors and family members, both living and deceased, whose lives and contributions have enriched our history and unique cultural heritage.

  • Patron supporters enroll or renew as Legacy Legion members annually and are invited to submit photographs and narrations about their honorees for inclusion in the Family Legacies book.

  • Narrative stories about Legacy Legion honorees will be included in Family Legacies:  A Publication of the Louisiana Creole Research Association.  The editors of the book will contact donors to obtain photographs and assist with the writing of the narratives.
  • When writing your narrative for the Family Legacies book here are some suggestions for what you might include. These topics will provide a useful historical reference. However, please feel free to write what best honors and describes your ancestor or loved one.
