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!

Google more is good, but more is better

Internet Explorer vs. Firefox
Ancestor Search wrote about the Google Toolbar back in May of 2007 and recently, Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter lauded Google Toolbar's usefulness. I've used the Google Toolbar in Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The highlight feature is quite handy, however, I prefer to use the Mozilla Firefox browser with its Search Engine add ons. Google search is without a doubt top notch, but the Mozilla Firefox add on will allow you to utilize several search engines. "More is good but more is better." Mozilla browsers also may highlight words and phrases for you in a document. I like Mozilla Firefox's ability to open multiple tabs much like in Yahoo's Toolbar, but with more Search Engine power. My Mozilla add ons offer Google, Yahoo, AOL, sphere, technorati, ESPN, Ixquick, Answers.com, wikipedia and a dictionary. There are many search engines to use on the internet . . . not just Google. Limiting searches to the Google Search engines would be like eating peanut butter without jelly.
