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!

Taking photos, looking for photos and a new database

Posted to the Louisiana Cemeteries RootsWeb list is a Ouachita Parish volunteer who would like to assist by taking cemetery photos. URL You will likely have to contact this person through the Ancestry/RootsWeb message board list, here, because the mailing list is gatewayed from the message board.

There are many people who are now searching for old photographs of relatives. Scanners are relatively cheap and digitizing old photographs in order to preserve them and share them is quite popular. Here is a copy of a post requesting a photograph that I found on the mailing lists:

Looking for info or photo of Eliza Jane Cooley Armstrong.b Aug 1869 MS, m
June 4, 1891 to Dickie Armstrong, Sabine Parish, d Feb 10
1948. Interested in any Native American connection.

Jimmy Earl Cooley

Researching: Cooley, Bailey, Sanders, Arrington, Tatum, Phillips,

From Genealogy Insider: A new site just launched to preserve the story of the slave trade and the Africans who became part of the largest forced migration in modern history. URL

I have found the site quite difficult to navigate, but there is a video tutorial that may explain the site further.
