Our Bacas Ancestors

Jean Baptiste Manuel Bacas &

The Bacas family is intertwined with many of the other German Coast families. I have tried to indicate my direct line in bold; + means there is another generation on this page.
Many thanks to Harold Jacobs, Sheldon Perilloux (Famille Perilloux), Steve Fleming, Dwayne Montz and many of my newly discovered cousins for the information they have shared. Please use the information as a guide to further research; accuracy is a primary goal, so if you see an error or have something to add please get in touch!
