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!

Facebook querys

Facebook querys are all the rage. I enjoy being able to answer a few and even when I can't find an answer I enjoy the research. Someone recently had a question about the BRUNO family in Lincoln Parish. I couldn't find any evidence in BLM GLO records for the specific First Name - Surname BRUNO, but I did find a record of a Pottawatomie Indian, Ship-we-tuck, aka Frances Bruno, living in Oklahoma. In checking the Prairie Rolls (Kansas) another name ADDISON was beside the similiarly spelled name Shop-y-tuck and further down the roll in the 1900's it was said that Shop-y-tuck was dead and his land sold. Well, the BLM GLO record was written in 1907. So I went back and searched all records for ADDISON. There's alot of ya'll in Louisiana! Anyway, the Prairie Roll indicated it was taken in 1900's and that Ship-y-tuck was a male 60yo Kansas. Back to looking for a BRUNO in Louisiana. New Orleans Louisiana Census records indicate that in 1820's there was a male child, Joseph Bruno, living in New Orleans. Another record in New Orleans at the same time (1820) there was a Vueve Bruno was living on Dauphine Street. In St. Landry Parish Louisiana in 1840 there was a free black named, Baptiste Bruno living with five other free blacks. 1 - female 36/55 years of age. 1 -female 10/24years of age. 1 - male 55/100 years of age. 1 - male 36/55 years of age. 1 - male 10/24years of age. The original query via Facebook chat was from someone in Italy, believe it or not, wondering about possible relatives in Lincoln Parish. So my question to everyone else is......did the Prairie Roll from Kansas mean Shop-y-tuck, Ship-we-tuck, Addison or Bruno? And if Shop-y-tuck in Kansas was the same is Ship-we-tuck in OK then who is Addison from the Prairie Roll in Kansas and what a surprise to find Frances Bruno alive in Oklahoma!
