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!

Group Roll Call and Louisiana Genealogy Alerts

Genealogy Trails' Southern States Yahoo! Group mailing list is taking a roll call. For those of you who are not familiar with mailing lists or Yahoo! Groups here is how it works. First you have to have an email address that you feel comfortable with giving out to the Group owner. Yahoo! Groups allows you to choose the types of email you receive if any. You can choose to only view messages at the website, too, freeing up your mailbox. You have to create a Yahoo sign in name to join Yahoo! Groups and use your email address. Then you have the choice as to what type of email you would or would not like to receive. If the Yahoo! Group is moderated, the owner must approve your membership before you are able to post to the group. Once you are a member of the group you are free to post your surnames or seek assistance with your brick walls. Genealogy Trails Southern States is requesting that you post your surname in the subject line of your messages because, "I get too many emails to read everyone of them as I'm sure alot of us do. It's the subject line that makes us either want to read it or delete it."

I would like for all of the Louisiana Group members to feel free to do the same - and post your surnames and brick walls. There are so many places to search for family information via the internet. There are several MSN Groups that offer a resource database where you can post your surnames, too. Let me know if you need the web url as I belong to several genealogy groups across the internet.

Don't forget that there is only one more day left to search Ancestry.com's military records for FREE.
