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!

Mobile Archdiocese Records and German Historical Archive collapse

West Bank Genealogy Society had this message today:

Mobile Archdiocese Records

For those who also have ancestry originating in Mobile and then New Orleans (as I do), you might be interested in the following:

I was recently in a discussion about the Mobile Archdiocese Records.  We sort of heard from the sister of the present archbishop that the previous archbishop was not interested in publishing any further volumes of the sacramental records.  It is possible if everyone writes to the present archbishop, we could convince him easily to continue (he's a native New Orleanian).  It's worth a shot.
Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi
400 Government Street
Mobile, AL 36602

There was an awful Tweet today:
Historical Archives of Cologne Germany collapsed. 

"History buried in the rubble..."
"The building housing Cologne's municipal archive collapsed on Tuesday, bringing parts of some surrounding structures down with it. At least two people are missing. Some of the documents housed in the archive date back to the year 922. The archive also contains some half a million photographs."
