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 surname groups on Facebook and more




There are many surname groups on Facebook in Louisiana. If you have friended me on Facebook, you can see the list. The following surnames appear:

SAM
KNOWLES
EARHART
NORMAND
GUIDRY
VUELMANS MUES and COFFERS
FUSELIER de la CLARE
TRAHAN ROBICHEAUX
GOUDEAU
CAVANEAUGH

I have also found a Friends of the St. Charles Library, which was awesome 'cause I love libraries.

The one problem that I have with a group on Facebook is the inability to search discussion posts. A Yahoo Group or a Google Group allows for message searching (when that Yahoo Search message feature works.)


In light of current events i.e. The Oil Spill in the Gulf, I would encourage those of you who have never visited Louisiana or understand the plight of our state's coastal regions to read this article, and when you are finished, join a Louisiana birding group on Facebook. Why? First of all, Louisiana birds are beautiful. Secondly, you may have a few less birds migrating next year and this will affect more than just Louisiana. Moving on....to more genealogy b/c I am ranting.


On my reading list this weekend was the The Robertson Family - Red River Sankofa blog. I enjoyed reading about the cemetery preservation efforts for Hettie Adgers cemetery, complete with photographs and transcriptions. I surfed around further found the site guestbook when noticed a link to a TNG site had been added recently. So I surfed on over.....but was disappointed to find that the site requires the admin to approve you before you view anything. Little did I know that Michael Hait had reviewed this site earlier this week, too. Read his review here about the website, Liberian Repatriates. I am looking forward to learning more about the site.
