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!

Sponsors needed to place wreaths
Veterans' graves to be decorated
From staff reports
Wreaths Across America has asked the U.S. Civil Air Patrol to help secure sponsorships for additional holiday wreaths to be placed in 240 veterans' cemeteries across the country this year.

A portion of each sponsorship will be given back to the USCAP Squadron that solicited the donation. The U.S. Civil Air Patrol will be responsible for placing wreaths on up to 500,000 veterans graves across the country.

Wreaths Across America began in 2006 as an offshoot to the Arlington National Cemetery wreath project, which started in 1992 with the annual placement of 5,000 wreaths donated by the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine.

The 2006 ceremonies were conducted largely by U.S. Civil Air Patrol Wings and Squadrons with the help of veterans' organizations, private citizens, the Maine State Society of Washington, which annually assists with the laying of wreaths at Arlington, and the Patriot Guard Riders.

Donations can be made online (credit/debit cards only) at www.cap.gov/donations.

Wreaths can also be purchased by order form with checks made payable to U.S. Civil Air Patrol. Order forms can be downloaded at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org or through a member of the U.S. Civil Air Patrol (please contact Major L. Michael Wilkinson, Cmdr., Lafayette Composite Squadron, U.S. Civil Air Patrol, at 406-9372 for further information or to request an order form).

The wreath laying ceremonies will commence at noon Dec. 15. The three National Cemeteries in Louisiana are: Baton Rouge National Cemetery, Port Hudson National Cemetery, Zachary, and the Alexandria National Cemetery in Pineville.
