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!

Save Our Cemeteries Facebook

Not everyone is a member of Facebook or has a Facebook account, so depending upon your privacy settings you may or may not be allowing everyone to view your notes. I've changed my settings to allow everyone to read my Louisiana Genealogy Blog Facebook page. I didn't realize that my privacy settings on Facebook were set to "only my friends". Now that the settings have changed, everyone should be able to read my Facebook pages.
Here is a post from Save Our Cemeteries that I would just love to attend. I love exhibits. The fact that this exhibit promotes the historical value of cemeteries is a plus plus, in my opinion.

Thursday, October 29, 2009
6:00pm - 8:00pm
The International House Hotel
221 Camp Street
New Orleans, LA

Save Our Cemeteries (SOC) is hosting its 18 Annual Cemeteryscape photography exhibit from October 29, 2009 through November 22, 2009.

Street, New Orleans. An opening reception will be held at this location on Thursday, October 29th from 6-8 pm.

This is a FREE event, so you can spread the word to anyone who may be interested.
