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!

SURNAMES: Jeansonne/Johnson, Clark, Hebert, Dorris, White, Buchan

From the Yahoo! Group:

I am searching surnames for both paternal and maternal sides of my
family lineage.

-paternal is JEANSONNE(JOHNSON)[Clark] and HEBERT
-maternal is DORRIS and WHITE [BUCHAN]
Paternal: Charles Frank & Malinda (Jeansonne) HEBERT
and Maternal: William Edward & Mary Josephine (White) DORRIS
Paternal: Flournoy (Flamoy, "Bug") & Azelie (Jeansonne) HEBERT
and: Benoit & Louise Jane (Clark) Johnson/Jeansonne
Maternal: John & "Miss" (Painter) DORRIS
and: Greenberry & Elizabeth (Buchan) WHITE
I believe the following so far: White, Buchan's and Dorris line came
to LA in mid (White & Buchan) and late (Doris) 1800s from Alabama,
county(ies) unknown. Heberts came to LA from Bourgonne region of
France via French colony in Alabama in 1760s, following 1763 Treaty
of Paris. Jeansonne/Johnson came to LA from Acadia (Canada) in 1760s
after the expulsion.
Any input or recommendations appreciated.
