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!

Le Comite, three genealogy networking sites, and a hurricane wiki

Judy Riffel has posted this website URL from the LAORLEAN mailing list. Le Comite des Archives de la Louisiana had to cancel its September 14th meeting due to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. I was unable to confirm this even late last week with its website at the Louisiana Archives. Le Comite's pages would not appear and I was re-directed. This new URL offered the information that I had been looking for at the Archives.
Le Comite des Archives de la Louisiane http://www.lecomite.org/index.html.

Evidently, this is a new website for Le Comite de Archives de la Louisiane. I posted to LAORLEAN the fact that I could not find the Le Comite website at the Louisiana Archives links from posts I had made earlier this year about April or so.

There were still 1/4 of Louisianians without power because of GUSTAV just before IKE decided to threaten. I hope that everyone is okay. There is a USGenWebbers hurricanecontact group, if you would like to join it or post that you are okay. Another helpful website would be The Hurricane Info Center Ning and Wiki. The Ning is for volunteers who are organizing the Wiki. The Wiki has many resourceful websites and phone numbers.

My Yahoo! Groups Surnames on Family Tree Circles

Once upon a time I tested out Ancient Faces and created a Family Story. There were several Louisiana links available from the Ancient Faces link directory.

  • The Carroll Family - Grief Carroll was the first Carroll to come to Washington Parish, Louisiana. He served as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War.

  • Avoyelles Parish Surname Origins - A brief history of the major French surnames of Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana, many of them among the original European settlers of the French Lousiana Colony.

  • Cajuns - Cajun, Acadian, Creole and Louisiana genealogy,history and culture. Includes the Spanish period and the "Islenos" surnames.

  • I really enjoyed surfing Ancient Faces and looking for Louisiana related stories. I have added all of the surnames from my Yahoo! Group to my Ancient Faces profile and I am looking forward to seeing what Ancient Faces has to offer.

    Here are some of the surnames that are being researched:Anderson, Anderson, Bast, Beaver, Beavers, BEIBER, Bollier, Bond, Bost, Brangato, Buchan, Chadwick, Choat, Choate, Clark, Clermont, Coffelt, Coffield, DeSoto, Dorris, Flores, Foreman, Gagne, Goodhart, GOODHEART, Guerrero, Hebert, Hodgen, Hodgens, Hodgin, Hodgins, Howell, Jeansonne, Johnson, Keel, Keele, Kell, Kellar, Keller, La Fitte, Lacobee, Laffitte, Lafitte, Langford, Lankford, Latham, Locaviche, Long, Maillieux, Mayou, Mayu, Miller, Morris, POUN(S), Pound, Pounds, Prudhomme, Quinterre, Rambin, Robleau, Roblo, Sanders, Seitz, Shadwick, Shoat, SITZ, Smith, St. Denis, St. Denys, Still, TAGART, Taggart, TAGGERT, Toups, Vowell, White, Williams, Y'Barbo

    GeneaNet is helpful, too and will email you with recent updates on the surnames that you are researching.
