What else can I find on this blog?

Dear Readers,

Louisiana Genealogy Blogs - Help create links to other genealogy blogs in Louisiana! If you have a Louisiana genealogy blog, please send me a link. You can find links to other genealogy blogs from a variety of sources below this blog. There are links to news stories about genealogy in Louisiana (when that Google thing works - tx Google!) and genealogy tags from Word Press, Louisiana posts from Cousin Connect, and posts from the genealogy community at Live Journal. You may also find other networking websites linking here interested in genealogy and a whole slew of other genealogy blogs. Most of the Louisiana Parishes RootsWeb mailing lists are found linked to the left. I have found these to be the most helpful. Maybe, you will, too.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you. Feel free to post to the forum or the Louisiana Surname - Louisiana Researchers list and if you're feeling rather adventurous, you can join the Yahoo!Group, too. I try to update the surname list on a monthly basis. You can read the entire four and one half pages of the Louisiana Surnames Louisiana Researchers list here. And if that is giving you trouble (it does sometimes), go here.

I would like to encourage other Louisiana genealogy bloggers to copy the profile I created from Blogger. It assists others in finding you in every parish in Louisiana! There are useful social tools like Add This at the bottom of the blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rayne, Opelousas, Louisiana, and The Homesick Cajun

The Genealogue posted an interesting story yesterday on Rayne, Louisiana's St. Joseph Catholic Church cemetery. I wonder how many more cemeteries in Louisiana point North-South instead of traditionally East? You'll have to read the story to find out! Rayne, Louisiana is located in Acadia Parish. Here's an interesting link to the cemetery, from Waymarking.com. It is a scavenger hunt based on GPS and latitude and longitude. Which brings me to another idea. There are cemeteries in Louisiana that have not been listed by USGS or GPS. Wouldn't it be great if someone would find them and list the GIS location? It just so happens that St. Joseph Catholic Church was tagged on Waymarking.com, which is associated with Geocaching.com. I'll have to investigate these sites for more locations! The Geocaching site has a Louisiana page that is worth checking out.

I'm a big fan of WebRings and surfed into The Homesick Cajun today. He's in the Cajun Ring. It is the home of the Tassin family pages that include the following surnames: Tamburello(18), Tassin(265), Madere(93), Tregre(21), Vicknair(19), Millet(23), Perilloux(71), Tastet(21), Cambre(129), Haydel(13).

You can find more Acadian-Cajun surnames on the Acadian-Cajun website. The Homesick Cajun also listed a few websites that are mouth watering. This led me to a link from A Cajun Homepage by Andrew Guidroz II in Opelousas, Louisiana. He has produced a short history of the city that was established in 1720. There are also some yummy recipes on his site. He has a cute racoon theme and a link to my favorite seasoning, Tony Chachere's. Nothing I cook for the holiday would be complete without it!
