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!

The 16,000 visitor mark

While the meter reads that over 16,000 visits have been made to the blog, not all of those visits actually STOP to read it. I'm not sure what causes the meter to count the visits that do not spend actual TIME on the blog reading it. I'd love to figure this out so that there could be a more accurate reading. (The tool is annoying me as I'd like to have an actual count, not a souped up idea.) I do get a bit of insight into what readers want through Google searches and would love to provide what readers are looking for, however, this blog can't be all things to all people here! Accessing the meters services takes quite a bit of time and only the last 100 visits are catalogued. This month I reached the 16,000th visit. In December of '08 I had 15,000 - so that's roughly 1,500 visits a month. A few actually read this blog and a few don't. I get surprised occassionally from a University logging in to read my blog. I'd like to see more Louisiana history and more Louisiana genealogy by Louisiana bloggers! I didn't screen capture the foreign visits as they were the fewest. Three or four from France and the UK. One from a Middle Eastern country. The foreign country visits are relatively new to this blog. I used to only have US visits. There are a few faithful readers it seems. I can't track them... but they are out there somewhere! :) I am still having a hard time reaching those in Death Valley, California. I just can't seem to get them to show up on the map at all.... lol Also I have never seen a visitor from Kansas or Iowa. (They're all probably still upset about the NCAA game or hard at work.)
