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 Mailbag

Here are a few genealogy posts and articles I found in my mailbox this morning. I also came across the GenHaven Blog and added it to the Genealogisphere. GenHaven has a chat room that is really helpful. They are worth checking out as they have over 800 members who share their genealogy search insights and information with the group.

I was shocked to read the APG mailing list recently. Evidently, someone has composed a fraudulent genealogy in Louisiana. The APG mailing list has posted the details. There are many genealogy sites out there and with them even more family trees. The first thing that I attempt to do when looking at a family tree, is attempt to confirm their source information. Source citations are important to print with your family tree information. I've found a plethora of information with regards to generating citations and bibliographies. I've been experimenting with Zotero recently. The program is easy to use, but I've found that writing down the information is the fastest way to document. I haven't quite mastered the software, but I've enjoyed fooling around with the program this weekend.
