This book is a culmination of over 30 years of research, 8,000+ travel miles and well over $3k in expenses by the author.  Includes 7 years of writing, consisting of 3 complete rewrites.  It is anticipated the content will prove to be informative and perhaps thought provoking and controversial. There are many genealogy books written over the history of humans. However, how many books have you found that are dedicated to exploration and documentation of the Pitres? This book should prove to be the first of its kind in many respects. There are many stories about the origins and history of the surname Pitre as well as who are these people. It is also a testimonial of one man’s journey into life long questions, hunger for knowledge, and thirst for absolute universal truth. Many stories have been told about the Pitres and their origins. Exploration into authenticating the validity of such stories and theories is one of the primary purposes of the author’s search in addition to closure. Closure in that which provides the means and inspiration to go on with the search for one’s true destiny and capability towards one’s one legacy in life. Some of which contains surprising conclusions backed up by authentic documents. Others pure logic, and still for others the truth may never be known. Who was Jean Pitre living in 17th century Port Royal L'Acadie? Was he from France? Maybe from England as some would suggest? Maybe neither? Perhaps the analysis holds surprising clues towards answering this age old question and others?

Amazon customer Loved the hardcover book. The format made it easy to keep up with each generation. Hearing stories about ancestors I only had a birth and death date for was awesome! The touches of history were an added delight. The countless hours you've spent researching, interviewing folks and writing the book is truly commendable. Thanks so much! PITRE COUSINS, don't hesitate to buy Lee Roy's book……. It has priceless information in it that should be handed down from one generation to another. I bought a copy for me and both of my children.
Eric Pitre Great Book, with a lot of information about the Pitre Family History not found anywhere else, including pictures. Most ancestry books or research do not have many pictures. The content was extensive and informative. Lot of interesting details about our family, i never knew or heard about before. It got me excited to research further on various topics and help provide answers to many unknowns. Well Done. Thank you for spending the time and effort on the research.
Laurie Williamson As someone who is wanting to learn more about her Acadian (Cajun) ancestry, I was anxious to read this book. Mr. Pitre's journey to find his family history from Louisiana, to Canada, to France is a touching one. It is also very-well documented in his book. The book is full of photos recording his journey and family's history. It is quite clear that much time was put into this search, and the search is not over. Is one's search ever fully over? I highly recommend this book.
Emily Neil Finished reading the book.. You are getting an A+.. I like the way you put it together.. I will treasure it. It is a lot of material to somehow create what became book #1and I can see that with all the material you probably have left over that you can probably create at least a couple more books.. Hope book #2 comes out soon
Jefferson Brumfield WOW. This book really is a window into the past. It's awesome to learn so much more, not only about a good friend's family, but the history of our home state as well.
Connie Pitre Fabre I absolutely love your Pitre book. The format made it easy to keep up with each generation. Hearing stories about ancestors I only had a birth and death date for was awesome! The touches of history (Where the Pitre's ended up originally when they came to La., Montegut history, and the Montegut Hermit Info.) were an added delight. The countless hours you've spent researching, interviewing folks and writing the book is truly commendable. Thanks so much. PITRE COUSINS, Don't hesitate to buy Lee Roy's book……. It has priceless information in it that should be handed down from one generation to another. I bought a copy for each of my children too!
Annette Hebert-Autio I recently received your book, Windows Into Yesteryears.  I think it looks great, is very well organized and quite informative. The cover is especially unique and captivating. I love it! It was quite exciting to read about the geographical history of the Pitre name. Congratulations.
