Genealogy of the Leche - Lesch - Laiche Family in Louisiana from 1759 to 2010 free pdf This genealogy begins with the arrival of the Antoine Leche and his wife Catherine von Hausen in Louisiana in 1759. It lists the family through ten generations to the modern day including nearly 4,000 family descendants. The project began with current family members building a family tree online. When my father, the author of this work, met the family at a Leche reunion in the late 1990s, he agreed to take the work already begun and research it into what you have here today. He worked on the research for a decade. He began editing in earnest after he retired in 2010, but passed away in 2011 with the first four generations complete. The rest of the work is complete if unedited, but provides complete information on most of the thousands of descendants listed. As it fell to me upon his death to publish the work, I present it as a complete family list without additional editing. It is a remarkable piece of research, combining my father's passion for genealogy and family history.

About Jr Frederic a Youngs

Frederic A. Youngs, Jr. was the son of Nel Leche Youngs. He met the rest of his Leche cousins at a reunion in the late 1990s and picked up work already started on the family genealogy. He worked on this until his retirement in 2010, then focused on editing the work into a form ready for publication. He passed away in 2011 with the first four generations edited and complete. This manuscript fell to me to publish for him. I present it here as a tribute to the work he compiled over a decade of effort, in its form as it was presented to me upon his death. Frederic A. Youngs, Jr. was born in New Orleans, graduated from Baton Rouge High School in 1953, attended Tulane University, DePaul University, Rice University and Cambridge University, where he earned his PhD in History. He taught at Louisiana State University in the History department from 1973 to 1987. He then went to Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans and was ordained a Catholic priest in 1990. He served several communities in Louisiana, the last at St. Isidore in north Baton Rouge where he was pastor for fifteen years. - by Charles Youngs
