After 150 years of cover-ups, calculated omissions, discrepancies, subtle half-truths, frauds, forgeries, falsified records, doctored documents, distortions, phoney oil portraits, retouched and digitally altered photos, and blatant lies, finally, the true history of the New Orleans Créoles is told.
New Orleans History Manual is required reading for everyone living in the United States. The information contained within these three volumes devoted to New Orleans Créole lineage, New Orleans Créoles and the military, and New Orleans Créole culture, solves some of the many mysteries and contradictions that swirl around the history of the Crescent City. This information will alter and expand your world view, as well as inspire you with even more questions. It will make you see the history of the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America, Western Europe, North American Indians, and women, differently.
These three volumes are essentially the study of the genealogies of certain New Orleans Créole families. Genealogies supply the core information necessary to begin to pull off the cover that conceals the truth about the New Orleans Créoles and their enigmatic history. Without genealogical trees, the true history of any group is dicey, and findings from this study would never have been possible. Volume I consists of 169 genealogical trees yielding a total of 3,000 names that were all derived from two seminal New Orleans Creole families - Tio y Riera and Hazeur De L'Orme, and three derivative families - LaMothe, Rigaud de Vaudreuil and Dreux Breze. In order to follow the accounts in Volume II and Volume III it is necessary to use the genealogies found in Volume I as a constant source of reference.
All three volumes should be considered as one manual that consists of three, independent yet integral, parts of the same study. These non fiction books will be followed by a novel that will tell the stories of some of the individual Créoles who appear in this trilogy in an epic historical format including events and situations not mentioned in the history manual. This will be the only historical novel of its kind ever written because it will be informed by the true history of the New Orleans Créoles/Criollos. But first, in order to fully appreciate the riveting stories in the fourth book, one should have read Volumes I, II, and III as historical guidelines. These three volumes should be used as a factual foundation and backdrop upon which to get the most out of the exploits and romances of the New Orleans Créoles/Criollos in the historical novel.
