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!

Free looks ups in Louisiana

RAOGK has a listing of people willing to do free look-ups in Louisiana Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness website. The site asks that before you make a request of a volunteer please read the FAQ page. Here is a list of questions from the RAOGK website:
Is this a free service?
How do I make a request?
How much can I ask of a volunteer?
How much information about my ancestors should I send to the volunteer?
May I send the same request to more than one volunteer?
There is no volunteer in the area I am researching, what do I do now?
What should I expect from a RAOGK volunteer when requesting information?
Will RAOGK volunteers look up information on the living or help those looking for their birth parents?
Do RAOGK volunteers do in-depth researching?
How often do the volunteers do lookups?
When can I submit a different request to that same volunteer?
What if I receive no response from the volunteer?
What if my email bounces back from the volunteer?
How do I thank the volunteer after my request has been filled?
What else can I do to show my appreciation for the lookup that was done for me?
Where do you get your volunteers?

GeneaSearch also offers a free look up service on its site for Louisiana.

Books We Own also offers look ups for your surnames in several parishes in Louisiana.
