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!

We knew she rocked...

"Two of America's pop-culture icons — music superstar Madonna and TV powerhouse Ellen DeGeneres — are distant cousins with Canadian roots......the two women are 11th cousins with a common "10th great-grandfather" — Martin Aucoin of France — whose daughters emigrated to Nova Scotia in the early 1600s."

"DeGeneres's family left Canada in the late 1700s when her fifth great-grandfather, Joseph Martin, relocated to Louisiana," says Ancestry.ca...."

"DeGeneres' ancestors appear likely to have been victims of the 18th-century Acadian Expulsion, the British government's forcible removal of tens of thousands of French-speaking residents of the Maritimes during the fall of New France." -- URL
