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!

The Louisiana Genealogisphere

Sphere is a wonderful search tool. I've missed it in the past few months and have quite a bit of catching up to do! I've found that I missed the Creole Heritage celebration back in October, but was able to catch up through their website, thanks to Caroline Dunn's post , "National Creole Heritage Conference". It just so happens she is a cousin of the Director, Janet Colson, of the Creole Studies Center at Northwestern Louisiana State University. The Louisiana Creole Heritage Center's website has a wonderful tool that will allow you to add your Creole surnames to their database and also search for your surnames. The October 2007 celebration, which I sadly missed, offers a report of events, photographs and a commemorative PDF full of information about the event that transpired.

I surfed into C.S. Harris' weblog this morning, as well. She celebrated Mardi Gras this year in Eunice, Louisiana, and offers a bit of her interest in genealogy. Candy's blog has a few photographs from the celebrations this year and comments that she received an email from a long lost cousin, third cousin once removed, in Germany who has been quite busy tracing the family tree. I wonder if she'd share it with us? There is after all, a German Acadian Coast Genealogy Society in Louisiana. In their recent January meeting the society took a look at Church Archives in surrounding parishes. "...Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes, also Grand Isle in Jefferson Parish, Stephensville in St. Martin Parish and Morgan City & Amelia in St. Mary Parish."

Here is another post about Louisiana Cajun genealogy, Vermilion Parish, and Abbeville, Louisiana, "...A Wealth of Cajun Names", from a blog called Brighthaven Times.

Thanks for the link to my post. I am going to enjoy reading your blog about La. Genealogy. My family's Cajun roots go back so far...I think my gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather was a mudbug!
