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!

USGenWeb site hacked?

According to lister noted here: URL there is a hacker running amuck! Read the disturbing message at that URL about the affected sites. The URL that I frequent for USGenWeb Louisiana Archives is the dot net domain and NOT the dot org domain so I don't see the sites as being affected. Most of the URL's for the dot org domain for the Louisiana Archives do not have the search engine running properly. I tend to stay away from the USGenWeb Louisiana Archives at the dot org domain for that reason. The Search link from some of the dot org domains have a BAD Search URL. There is a VERY subtle difference that you should identify.
This URL is Bad:
http://www.usgwarchives.org/search/search.cgi/searchla.htm?

This URL is Good:
http://www.usgwarchives.net/search/search.cgi/searchla.htm?

This slipped under my Louisiana genealogy radar from the Louisiana Dept. of Veteran Affairs. "The Louisiana Veterans Honor Medal was created by Act 695 of 2008 Louisiana Legislature. The intention is to recognize and honor all Louisiana veterans." You may read more about this medal from their website. The Louisiana Archives USGenWeb site posted information concerning this medal here.
