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!

Genealogy Gems News post:

Here's a sneak peek at some of the collections that will be coming to Ancestry.com in February 2009:

1) Title: Slave Manifests Filed at New Orleans, Louisiana, 1807-1860

Brief description: This collection includes manifests of slaves who were transported from one place to another within the U.S. The images are being released first while indexing commences through the World Archives Project.

As I mentioned in Genealogy Gems Episode 58 Ancestry is focusing on Civil War & Lincoln records in honor of the 200th anniversary of his birth.

Discussing Indian Heritage - Marshall Carver (Born 1883)

This week at NOPL from nolabrarian on Live Journal


Tonight! Thursday, Feb 5 at 6:30 pm
at Alvar Library in the Bywater: 913 Alvar St. (596-2667)

Homer Plessy -- The Movement -- The Moment

Local author Keith Weldon-Medley will explore the life and times of Homer Plessy with a New Orleans-centric look at this early freedom rider. Mr Plessy's arrest at Press Street Railroad Yards led to the historic journey of this US Supreme Court civil rights case.
(On a personal note: I saw a presentation on this subject by the same author just a few weeks ago, and it was pretty fascinating if you're interested in New Orleans history.)

Also, unrelated to the library, but a tie in to Homer Plessy, please see this LJ entry: http://community.livejournal.com/neworleans/3333025.html about the historical marker dedication onm Feb 12 to commemorate this event.
