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!

Facebook updates, my blog reads, cemeteries and Ancestry

Facebook sure did make a quick turnaround with its TOS. No sooner did I post the last news story to the Copyright RootsWeb mailing list about the potential suit filed, than Facebook issued a statement to the news that there was a "misunderstanding" with regards to its TOS. You can find a link from the RootsWeb Copyright mailing list on my earlier post. I suppose things have settled down now? We'll have to see!

There are several other bloggers out there who are blogging Louisiana history. I found Detour Through History's post about their recent visit URL to the Battle of New Orleans.

It seems that I am not the lone blogger when it comes to Louisiana's cemeteries. There are one or two more! S. L. wrote recently in the Southern Graves blog an article about Charles Orleans, monument builder. S. L. was inspired by a book: Forever Dixie: A Field Guide to Southern Cemeteries & Their Residents, by Douglas Keister.

Ancestry has put online the Ibiblio database of Afro Louisiana History and Genealogy 1718-1820. I've found it much easier to search off of Ancestry due to their merciless sign in procedures. You can search the database here.
