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!

Searching the group, meetings, lists, and vol. 1 no. 2 CCPP

Read Vol. 1 Number 2 by Damon Veach, Cajuns, Creoles, Pirates, and Planters, March 23, 2009 (CCPP)

Mr. Veach emphasizes the importance of Genealogy Society membership, from a quick glance at his article. I'd like to emphasize the importance of libraries, where 75% - 90% of your genealogy information can be found. I'm not referencing JUST ONE LIBRARY. Louisiana has MANY libraries. (And likely, a library in MANY, too.)

The Northeast Louisiana Genealogical and Historical Society will be meeting April 5th in Ouachita Parish, according to The News Star.

The Louisiana RootsWeb mailing list has had a few interesting discussions lately. Someone posted information found in a California newspaper concerning a duel that occurred in New Orleans in the 1800's. I wonder how many relatives actually participated in a duel?

The Louisiana Cemetery Preservation Ning keeps chugging along. Mr. Gautier has posted a few notable photos that have been quite interesting concerning a few of Louisiana's Governors and their families.

A query has been posted on the Ning forum requesting photographs of a few family plots in Lake Lawn Metarie / New Orleans cemetery.

There have been several additions to the Louisiana Researchers - Louisiana Surnames board. In fact, there have been so many that it has reached page 2! Quite a feat, for this little 'ole genealogy blog and Yahoo Group.

Yahoo is moving its Group archives to a different server. There have been difficulties in accessing the group archives due to this change. It has been said that Yahoo will complete its move by the end of March. I hope that the search engine will work again after the move as it has been failing miserably in the group.

I've had visitors from The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Mexico and India, lately. The Blogflux map chart doesn't appear to be working, but the smaller link does appear functional. I'm going to have to remove the one that is broken down. It may relieve the up-time on this blog a little bit.
