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!

Genealogy Bank additions April 2008

In my alerts this morning I found that Genealogy Bank has a few new additions to their searchable newspaper archives. They have listed: LA New Orleans Abeja 1/3/1829 12/26/1831 Historical Newspapers - in their archives. This section of a Louisiana newspaper has been added to its archive from a Spanish section of L'Abeille de la Nouvelle Orléans and The Bee. LSU special selections has more to say about the newspaper here.
And Tulane has a bit about the newspaper here, that indicates the following: "La Abeja (Spanish section of L'Abeille de la Nouvelle Orléans and The Bee) Daily. In French, Spanish and English. (Spanish section, Sept., 1829-Sept. 18, 1930) François Delaup, editor. Offices at 94 St. Peter Street. Ten years later a brief Spanish section was added to carry the pro-Whig sentiments of the paper to the Spanish- speaking population immediately prior to the 1840 national election. (Spanish section, Oct. 6 1840-Nov. 4, 1840)."

See Footnote, Leona Queyrouze and in the future General Pierre Soule.
