Recorded Acadien history to be found at museum.

As we inch closer to the Grand Réveil Acadien this fall, events surrounding the nine-day commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the Acadiens arrival here have come into sharp focus.

 

And that focus is made with a wide angle lens as activities from Houma to Opelousas are set to take place from October 3-9.
Acadiana cities, towns involved include Crowley, Lake Charles, Lacassine, Carencro, Delcambre, Grand Chenier, Jennings, Rayne, Loureauville, Opelousas, Breaux Bridge, New Iberia, Avery Island, St. Martinville, Arnaudville, Eunice, Henderson, Scott and Lafayette.
But if we zoom in to the town of St. Martinville, we’ll find the Acadian Memorial and note that a special exhibit of historical documents from Grand Pré registries house at the Diocese of Baton Rouge and other early documents from St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church and the St. Martin Parish Courthouse will be on view later this month…

Irish Catholics can trace ancestry back 300 years.

From today, people of Irish Catholic ancestry will be able to trace their origins back 300 years. The entire collection of Catholic parish register microfilms held by the National Library of Ireland – close to 400,000 films – has gone live online.

The National Library of Ireland has been working to digitize the microfilms for more than three years under its most ambitious digitization program to date.
The records could prove vital for people of Irish ancestry living overseas who are trying to to track down the origins of their relatives…

Transcription: News article re John Lambert Cadwalader

John Lambert Cadwalader, Collector of the Port of Philadelphia: Chester Times article, Race for Deputy Collector, Chester, Pennsylvania, About August, 1885, Col. 3

 

RACE FOR DEPUTY COLLECTOR
————
The Efforts Being Made to Secure Samuel Lyon’s Position in this City

Transcription: News article re John Lambert Cadwalader as Collector of the Port of Philadelphia
News article re John Lambert Cadwalader as Collector of the Port of Philadelphia

President Cleveland last week appointed John Cadwalader as Collector of the Port of Philadelphia, in place of General Hartranft, who has ably filled that position for the past four years. In making his changes in that department Mr. Cadwalader will discover that the city of Chester is entitled to his consideration to the extent of one appointment, that of Deputy Collector of the Port. The present incumbent is Samuel Lyons, Esq., and the Democrats who desire to step into his shoes are numerous, although in the opinion of most of the members of that party with whom we have talked the actual contest has narrowed down to two persons.

Peter Mundy, the Market street grocer, was months ago spoken of as a candidate for that place as soon as any change was contemplated, and his claims have since been steadily advanced by zealous friends. This gentleman is highly esteemed by all citizens, both in and out of his own party. He has been a resident of the Middle ward for over 25 years, 20 years of which time he has voted the Democratic ticket, besides taking an active part in all organizations and movements of his party. Besides this he is a gentleman of sound business ability, and ranks high in the estimation of the public.

Mr. Mundy’s principal rival in the race is John B. Sanville, the South ward spar builder, whose petition is being extensively signed. Mr. Sanville’s friends claim that he is especially adapted to the position from his through knowledge of vessels and shipping interests.

Some of our citizens are inclined to doubt the appointment of anybody to this post. They say that the office was originally created as a favor to the Hon. William Ward, then member of Congress from this district, but now that the era of retrenchment has been inaugurated it may be considered unnecessary extravagance to support such an office here any longer. However, this may be, of course, only time and the action of Collector Cadwalader can tell.

Oxford University genetics study indicates a complex genetic ancestry of Americans.

The University of Oxford has conducted a study of the “Complex genetic ancestry of Americans,” where the genes of North and South Americans with European and African representation were compared, and found the genetic links of the colonisation of the Americas and the slave trade.

 

DNA Study
Studying genetics.

Researchers involved in the study analysed over 4,000 DNA samples crossing a broad spectrum of populations of the Americas, Europe and Africa. By tracking DNA of the originating populations with that of the populations in the Americas, Europe and Africa, they found that “the genetic profile of Americans is much more complex than previously thought,” according to study leader Professor Cristian Capelli from the Department of Zoology at Oxford University.

The study found that:

  • “While Spaniards provide the majority of European ancestry in continental American Hispanic/Latino populations, the most common European genetic source in African-Americans and Barbadians comes from Great Britain.
  • The Basques, a distinct ethnic group spread across current-day Spain and France, provided a small but distinct genetic contribution to current-day Continental South American populations, including the Maya in Mexico.
  • The Caribbean Islands of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are genetically similar to each other and distinct from the other populations, probably reflecting a different migration pattern between the Caribbean and mainland America.
  • Compared to South Americans, people from Caribbean countries (such as the Barbados) had a larger genetic contribution from Africa.
  • The ancestors of current-day Yoruba people from West Africa (one of the largest African ethnic groups) provided the largest contribution of genes from Africa to all current-day American populations.
  • The proportion of African ancestry varied across the continent, from virtually zero (in the Maya people from Mexico) to 87% in current-day Barbados.
  • South Italy and Sicily also provided a significant European genetic contribution to Colombia and Puerto Rico, in line with the known history of Italian emigrants to the Americas in the late 19th and early 20th century
  • One of the African-American groups from the USA had French ancestry, in agreement with historical French immigration into the colonial Southern United States.
  • The proportion of genes from European versus African sources varied greatly from individual to individual within recipient populations.”

The press release at Eurekaalert.com provides more information.

MRSA remedy: Looking to the past can solve problems of the present and future.

A surprising finding by Dr. Christina Lee of the University of Nottingham has been key to discovering that a medieval remedy used to treat eye infections has properties that could be useful today, as described in “AncientBiotics – a medieval remedy for modern day superbugs?”

 

Bald's Leechbook
Bald’s Leechbook

The recipe for this remedy existed in an old manuscript from Bald’s Leechbook in the British Library collection, and Dr. Lee, along with the help of University microbiologists, recreated the one thousand year old Anglo-Saxon recipe.

Curious about its possibilities as an antibacterial agent, the mixture was tested in Britain and the United States and it was discovered to have an amazing effect on Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), possibly one of the worst examples of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that modern health services are currently battling – at great cost.

The above-mentioned article goes into much greater detail about those involved and the processes used during this study, and its findings, as well as a great video.
