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!

"Cast Your Eyes Upon A Loyal Population": Lincoln and Louisiana's Free People of Color - May 9, 2009

From NOGDCR Yahoo Group

Louisiana Creole Research Association, Inc. (LA Creole); Louisiana Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission; and Tulane University present seminar on Lincoln and Free Blacks in Louisiana.
 
Event Date: May 9, 2009
 
As the entire nation observes this bicentennial year anniversary of the birth of President Abraham Lincoln, the three organizations above have planned a seminar on a unique yet little known aspect of Lincoln history.
 
In March 1864, two free men of color from New Orleans met with leading abolitionists including William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, and William Sumner, while en route to Washington, D.C. In the capitol city, they presented a petition of over 1,000 signatures of free men of color to President Lincoln. Throughout the Civil War, Lincoln and many of the leading abolitionists were aware of the loyal Unionist population of free blacks in Louisiana who had fought valiantly in the Union army.
 
On Saturday, May 9, 2009 from 1:00p.m. - 4:00p.m., a seminar titled "Cast Your Eyes Upon A Loyal Population": Lincoln and Louisiana's Free People of Color in Jones Hall at Tulane University. Four speakers are scheduled to speak, discussing the development of the free black community in New Orleans and their political activism.
