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!

New members and visitors to Louisiana Genealogy Blogs

I'd like to welcome new members to the Yahoo Group and say thanks for the following cities/towns recent visits to the blog this week from Missouri, Texas; Biloxi, Mississippi, Huntsville, Alabama; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Sumiton, Alabama; Beaumont, Texas; and Yazoo City, Mississippi.

I've heard of the city or town of  Louisiana, Missouri, but I've never heard of  a Missouri, Texas!  That was a treat.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day.  I spent my weekend searching local graveyards and cemeteries for a 3rd great uncle's grave.  I couldn't find him so I placed a call to the cemetery, who said that they recognized the name and have seen his grave on occassion.  The cemetery said that they would locate him on a cemetery plot map for me and I am waiting to hear back from them.  I will likely call back today to see if they've looked up his location in their archives.  The cemetery is split into three sections and is rather large, so I'm sure there are several books of plot information to look into for locations.  I hope to know soon.  My 3rd great uncle had no immediate family in the 1930's and he was buried by members of the Eagles.
