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!

Footnotes on Bonnie and Clyde

EOGN May 6, 2009 post about Bonnie and Clyde:

The following was written by Footnote:

Notorious gangsters, Bonnie and Clyde, ignited the citizens of the United States during their two-year crime spree. The public idolized their Robin Hood attitude during the Great Depression and watched with great interest while Bonnie and Clyde traveled around the country robbing and killing.

After burglarizing dozens of banks and stores, as well as killing over twelve people, including nine police officers, the police eventually caught up to the duo in Louisiana. On May 23, 1934, near Bienville Parish, Louisiana, Bonnie and Clyde were killed in an ambush. The police riddled their car with over one hundred rounds, killing both inside. Their death ended the famous crime spree, but immortalized this famous couple in America's memory. Bonnie and Clyde symbolized tragic love, rebellious youth, and the problems of an entire generation trying to get ahead in the desperate age of the Great Depression.

The Algerine has more about Bonnie and Clyde in the No. 15 issue available for $3.00.

Last year, I blogged a newspaper article by Floyd Largent who wrote a two part series on  Bonnie and Clyde complete with tombstone photos.

LSU Special Collections has more information on audio tape about Bonnie and Clyde, too, listed in their index of "finding aids" to special collections.

Karen Burney has even blogged Bonnie and Clyde: Bonnie and Clyde's Louisiana connection
