marie laveau’s grandchild and neice
My grandmother’s name was Marie Laveau. Her half-sister was also named Marie Laveau and was the infamous Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, I found both Maries thru meticulous research and plain good fortune. I began my search in 1995 with a scrap of paper I had kept for over thirty years and more than a dozen moves across the country. On the paper were names given to me by a visiting relative back in the sixties.The names were, like in the fairy tale,”the crumbs that led me gramma’s house”. The hidden jewel of finding my family is a deeper understanding , appreciation, and pride for the values and wisdom that transend all those generations, and which was passed down to me.
