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!

Correction USGenWeb Mirror Site Preps New Search Engine

Eureka! I found it! The USGenWeb Archives Special Projects link, http://www.usgenwebarchives.net/, posted a link to the USGenWeb Archives Newsletter. I've never seen the newsletter before or its homepage and I thought I've been everywhere on USGenWeb. That just goes to show you that you learn something new everyday. According to the newsletter post on June 15th, 2008, Maggie Stewart wrote that the new website at the dot net address will be a mirror site to the .org site . The LAORLEAN post was correct, but left out the mirror part. I hope that this remains true as many people have already had to update to this new URL from their personal genealogy homepages and genealogy sites. The LAORLEAN post left me with the idea that the new site would be totally gone.
"...The Archives is integrating to a new dedicated
server at http://www.usgwarchives.net and there
will be a mirror at http://www.usgwarchives.org.
This is being done for the construction of a
fantastic new search engine. .." URL of thread

After visiting the USGenWeb site today, it appears that they are having some technical issues with their html. The links to the right are not functioning and the webpage moves through the margins. After further investigation with the issue it's my Firefox Mozilla brower that has updated itself recently that is causing the problem. The Firefox browser displays the page with the inoperable links to the right and is overlapped by the wording in the center of the page. The Internet Explorer browser does not display the links to the right at all and the page appears appropriately. Oh Nuts! I love my Firefox Mozilla browser and it looks like I'm going to have to view the USGenWeb page only in IE.

Then of course, Blogger has to mess me around with the quote tool that won't let me switch off the quotes after I make them! Grrrrrr.
