In my January blog I discussed the two types of family book presentations. They are the descendant (see relationships and the entire family from the oldest family member) and ancestry method (the pedigree chart where only your family is reported beginning with you and looking backwards into time).
In the hardbound cover “Gus” Miller book there are pictures of the family and its ancestry. Family ancestry charts for Beverly, Barbara, Charles and Michael Veillon for back to their fourth great-grandparents, those born in the 1700s. An article by Carl A. Brasseaux, “The Long Road to Louisiana: Acadian Exiles and the Britain Incident” describes the trip that Jacob Miller and family took from Maryland to Texas, although their destination was New Orleans, and their eventual journey to Louisiana after being held hostage by the Spanish for several months. Moreover this book includes the ancestry of Monette Olga Miller, a Jacob Miller descendant, who married Keith Miller, a George Miller descendant from the UK and in the Jack Miller family of the well known Jack Miller’s BBQ Sauce from Mamou. Yes they are long-distance cousins but not on the Miller family lines.
Included in this book are the Beverly Rita Veillon ancestors. Thus with her family history you see her pedigree chart that includes all the information I had on Lindsey Veillon’s ancestors back to the early 1600s. His ancestry includes Henry Fuselier, born in 1870, Francois Savoye, born in 1620, and his wife Catherine LeJeune; Jean Pierre Commeaux, born 1597, and wife Rose Bagols, born 1631 and Pierre des Autels (Deshotels) and wife Renee LeBrun, both dating back to the 1500s. This pedigree family data is over 150 pages.
Beverly R. Veillon ancestry also includes her mother Anata Vidrine family back to the 1500s, to the parents of Francois Vidrine born in 1599. The oldest ancestor is Gerg DeComeau (Comeau) born in 1450.
In addition to all the above, Gus Miller’s Kinship report is in this book. Family members can see his kinship to all the people reported in these 150 pages of cousins.
As a military veteran, I began documenting all the Miller descendants who served their country. These 16 pages report the men and women and their parents, the service branch and the era such as Civil War, WWI and II, Korean and Viet Nam conflicts. It also reports non-combat veterans’ like me.
This hardbound cover 708 page book is tailored to the Gus Miller descendants and it gives their complete ancestry in addition to many photos. It may be purchased at www.lulu.com. The softbound and less expensive version without the pictures can be purchased HERE.
