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!

Algiers Historical Society and Genealogical Research Society of New Orleans

From the West Bank Genealogical Society Yahoo Group:
The April meeting of the GRSNO will be held on Monday, April 20, 2009 at the Whitney National Bank, Metairie Branch, 1441 Metairie Rd., at 7:30 PM. Colleen Fitzpatrick will be the guest speaker. Her topic is "A Different Kind of DNA Talk." Colleen Fitzpatrick, PhD, is the Consulting Genealogist for the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory. She has been recognized in print media and on MSNBC for her work on the crash of Northwest Flight 4422. She was a key member of the team who identified the remains of the Unknown Child of the Titanic. She is the author of three bestselling books on genealogy, and an award-winning author and columnist who writes for major genealogical publications. The meeting room is entered from the parking lot off Codifer St. which provides a lighted safe area for parking. Light refreshments are provided.

Also this from the Algiers Historical Society
First of all, here's a reminder that this month's meeting is Saturday at 10am at the Carriage House behind the Courthouse, 225 Morgan.
Mark Cave, librarian at the Williams Research Center (Historic New Orleans Collection), will give a presentation on Algiers jazz legend, band leader and music teacher, Manuel Manetta. It's going to be a great one, and there will be music, coffee and cookies. And it's free! Plus, we've got great news about the oral history project. Warren, Roz and Chad at Old Point Bar have donated $200 to the project, adding to the $600 Dr. Gizelle Richard donated to kick it off. If you need a beer or some dental work, please consider showing your thanks by patronizing these Algiers businesses! If you haven't heard, Algiers Historical Society (AHS) is launching an oral history project in which we will record the stories of Algerines. The edited recordings will be made available online and via CD, with copies given to local libraries, schools and other archiv es. They will also be used to create an audio walking tour of Old Algiers, accessible via cell phone or through downloads, and marketed to locals and visitors. The idea is to bring the streets of Algiers alive with voices and music once more, and to give a gift to current and former residents, a lasting record of Algiers' history. We believe it will also be of interest to visitors from across New Orleans and all over the world, especially since jazz is a core part of the story. If you would like to make a contribution, which will be used to secure the necessary equipment and technical support, that would be wonderful! Checks payable to Algiers Historical Society can be mailed to 335 Pelican Avenue, 70114. I hope to see you on Saturday! Take care, Amy 504-322-7479 Amy Hubbell 305 Delaronde Street
