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!

Jewish cemetery, U.S. Grant's Papers, A Freedom Tweet, USGenWeb's New Census Records

It was awful to read about the desecration over the weekend at one of Lousiana's historic Jewish cemeteries. I caught the news today from a Shreveport Times article and a heads up from Tracing the Tribe. NARA will be celebrating the fourth annual Jewish American Heritage Month in a few days with an opening celebration on May 27th. Here is more from DEARMyrtle on the event. (more....if you've read DEARMYRTLE.....here is a link to search U.S. GRANT'S records, if you are interested. You will find the most interesting information in Volume XIX. I found this article on a Twitter Juneteenth Celebration neat, too. h/t URL)

There are new Census uploads to report from USGenWeb Census Project:

This in from my mail bag:
The Winn Genealogical and Historical Association will hold a meeting Saturday May 22 at 9:30 AM. The purpose of the meeting will be to record 2 small African American cemeteries, so come dressed for work. The group plans to meet in the parking lot of the Health Unit and proceed from there to the first cemetery, Lone Hill. After the work is completed a cook out will be held at the home of Jack Crain.

This should prove to be an exciting and interesting outing so don’t miss it.

The public is invited to attend.
