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!

CCPP Vol. 1 No. 4 by Damon Veach

If you haven't read the April 6th edition, you better scramble on over to Claitors and read! Mr. Veach discusses: Missin' Mississippians, Special Building-Special Occassion, Morris-Duncan-Kidd, McDonogh Tradition, Forensic Genealogy, Vital Records and Querys.

(I have a few missing relatives in Mississippi, too. We are neighbors after all!)

Mr Veach states that querys are published free.
From Claitors
Louisiana Ancestors column format is the oldest of its kind in the United States, and it is now available by way of the Internet. If you are interested in continuing reading and enjoying these column formats, you need to know that it is now a part of Claitor’s Publishing Division’s outstanding collection of publications (http://www.claitors.com). Queries are published free and can be any length but should have a Louisiana connection by heritage or by a state resident working on lines in other areas. Books, society publications/newsletters, dated notices, and other data of importance will be reviewed if copies are submitted with each request. All materials are then donated to the Veach-Foshee Memorial Library Collection in Mansfield, Louisiana, where all the material will be available for research. It is one of the largest genealogical collections in the state and is the property of the DeSoto Parish Historical Society and housed in the Mansfield Female College, the oldest college for women west of the Mississippi River. The property is a part of the complex of museums under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of State.

All correspondence concerning this can be sent to

The snail-mail address is CCPP Ancestors Column, 709 Bungalow Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70802-5337.

This is a special service to genealogical researchers and for promotion of all genealogical and historical societies in the state and in other areas of the country. Volume 1, Number 1 will begin immediately on a weekly basis.
