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!

Virtual Louisiana Research in South Cali!

Visit The Surname Wall from Southern California Genealogy.
From their website:

The Virtual Surname Wall provides a worry-free way to post information about your ancestors online and find others who are researching your families.

As a participant, you would list general information, including surname, geography and time frame. Our submission software limits each entry to a maximum of 10 family names, BUT you can submit as many times as you want as often as you like. If space becomes an issue in the future, we may place restrictions on data quantity. Surname Wall information will be maintained by SCGS and included in a searchable online database that will be accessible to the public at no cost on the SCGS website. SCGS cannot be responsible for incorrect or outdated contact information.

Your identifying information will not be displayed. Should we receive an inquiry regarding a possible family connection, SCGS will forward the requestor’s contact information to you. Alternately, you can authorize SCGS to release either your email address or complete contact information.

There is no charge for this service, and the offer is open to the public. We encourage you to extend this invitation to your cousins, genealogy e-mail lists, other society members, and your family history genealogy acquaintances.

Participation in the project is your authorization to include your surname information in any printed or searchable online databases that may be developed.

We welcome family information from any geographic area, not just California, and not just from the US.

To participate in the Virtual Surname Wall, you will be asked for the following information.

  • Your family surnames, including any spelling variations.
  • The geographic area(s) in which they lived, or the migration path.
  • The associated period of time.

Of course, participation in the Virtual Surname Wall project is completely voluntary. If you have questions at any time about the Virtual Surname Wall, please contact us at lanelle.jacoby@gmail.com.

If you would prefer to submit your information by mail, download the flyer and mail to:
