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!

Louisiana Societies update

From my mailbag:

This was a repost from months previous:
Winn Genealogical and Historical Association
I wanted to extend a invitation to anyone in all of the surrounding
Parishes to join the Winn Genealogical and Historical Association that is located in Winnfield, LA.

As part of your membership you receive a copy of our award winning
journal,the Legacies & Legends of Winn Parish, Louisiana, published in
April, August and December.

We'd love to publish public records, old newspaper transcriptions, cemetery censuses, or family histories from our border parishes not already covered by another genealogical society's publication. You may email them to our editor, Peggy Beaubouef, at pcbjr@bellsouth.net

Our main purpose is to research, record, publish, and preserve genealogical and historical information about the people, places, and events in the history of Winn and neighboring parishes. We also seek to promote and further an understanding of genealogical research, emphasizing sound genealogical proof standards as well as proper documentation and source citation.

We are in the process of transcribing a cemetery at the moment, with plans to do more in the future.

Our meetings are held on the second floor of the Winn Parish Health Unit Building, located at 301 W. Main, back stair entrance across from the Winn Parish Library. We meet at 10:30 A.M. on the second Saturday of January, March, May, July, September and November.

If anyone would like more information you can contact us by snail mail or email.

Our email address is winngha@yahoo.com

With our mailing address being:

Winn Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc.
P.O. Box 1357
Winnfield, LA 71482-1357

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Delores Prince McFarland
