Lambert Yax was not the son of Pierre Yax. He was the son of John Baptiste Yax and Regina Christina Huyet dit Champagne. John Baptiste was another son of Michael Johannes Jacks and Catherine Herbinne.

Trudy, Your Grandfather was my Great Uncle. My Grandfather, Roy Yax was the brother of your grandfather, John. My parents and my younger sister came and visited your grandfather, my Uncle Johnnie and Aunt Ida every Memorial Day. I know that I met some of their grandchildren but don't remember their names. My fathers name was Clarence does that ring any bells. I would be glad to help you with more recent geneology if you'd like. Let me know.

Trudy, Please e-mail directly at I really didn't think I would get a reply. You posted your message so long ago. Today would have been my fathers birthday. He would have been 80. Do you need information going backwards or forwards? Let me know. I will be seeing my Aunt Alice this weekend and she is the one who has a lot of information. My mother started the searching years ago. When she died my brother and my Aunt continued searching.
