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!

DNA and your family tree

Cemetery Genealogy News has posted an informative article about The Genographic Project. It stemmed from an article from the state of MISSOURI, High school project traces students' genetic roots, Steve Giegerich, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 17, 2008. The Deseret Morning News has also posted this morning a few concerns with DNA research and your family tree, DNA and the family tree - "Some genetic-testing companies promise more than they can deliver", by Jason Lee. If your in the dark about DNA research and genealogy these articles may bring you up to date. The Genographic Project has a few issues of its own in Alaska. Alaskan natives refused to participate-cooperate, and I believe, hired a lawyer and posted a website about their concerns.One of their issues with the project was that what would happen to their rights as Natives once the test results came in and were counter to what they believed about their blood lines. Interestingly enough, The Deseret Morning News article addresses similar issues and adds a few more. Here are a few links to the Genographic Project to get you going.
