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!

Surfing my mailbag I ran across a few notes from fellow Louisiana genealogy bloggers concerning Live Oak Plantation and one query concerning the BLACKWELL surname of "Live Oak Plantation". There is one internment noted on FAG at "Live Oaks Plantation" in Iberville Parish, where the Political Graveyard has listed him as: Thomas Withers Chinn US Rep 2nd Dst 1839-1841 who was reinterred to Live Oaks Plantation Cemetery with a cenotaph at Magnolia Cemetery in Baton Rouge, LA. Do you suppose there may be more than one Plantation named Live Oak? Yup. Here is another Live Oak Plantation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in an article from The Advocate. So that places Live Oak Plantations in Iberville Parish, Baton Rouge, Lafourche and East Carroll Parish? Curious isn't it? Now if we could get folks to designate the parish or the city Live Oak Baton Rouge Plantation, Live Oak Iberville Parish Plantation, maybe this search wouldn't be so confusing!
