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!

MyHeritage Genealogy Search Engine Upgrade

I don't know if anyone has noticed or not but My Heritage now declares that they also based in the UK.  Previously, I noted that they were based in Israel.
A pdf file was also sent with the email about the upgrade.  They boast hosting over 12 million (no, scratch that ...) BILLION  names and 1,526 databases.  An additional 150 new sources have been added including:

BMD Registrars UK
German Immigrants Database
Western Michigan Newspapers
Arizona Birth and Death Certs
European Patent Office
Palatines to America
US Social Security Death Index
and others...

You can access Louisiana's site here.
