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!

Louisiana's Famous & Infamous A Gala For Preservation

"The Foundation for Historical Louisiana has unveiled plans for its 10th
Annual Old Governor’s Mansion Gala to be held on Thursday evening, October 30, with a theme of "The Famous and Infamous of Louisiana.” FHL Board Chair Lenore Feeney announced that the Gala co-chairs will be Bill and Christel Slaughter, community and business leaders who are vitally interested in cultural and historic preservation. "This event
provides a large percent of FHL's funding. We are thrilled to be working for the cause of historic preservation and our Louisiana heritage," said the co-chairs.

The entertainment for the event will be provided by the Buck Town All Stars, who will perform in the Mansion's Rose Garden from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The traditional large silent auction will be held in the East Room ballroom.

Donations for the silent auction, corporate sponsorships, and ticket sales are getting underway now. Attendees are invited to come in costume as your favorite Louisiana personage, past or present. Of course there is always the possibility of dressing like Huey and Earl and Blaze, but other suggestions have ranged from Marie Laveau, Lafitte the Pirate, the Blue Dog and the Jolie Blonde. As is traditional over the ten years of this great Baton Rouge fundraiser, men black tie and women in dressy dress is certainly an option.

Tickets are $100 per person for FHL members and $125 for non-members. Special gala price for 30 and younger $50! "
