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!

Family - a definition best left alone

Would you argue about the definition of a family? In genealogy, I have found that there are some confusing aspects to the definition. Do you include divorced family members, for instance? How about adopted or legal family members? It is all up to you, in my opinion, how or if you include adopted, legal or divorced members in your family genealogy. That's personal, isn't it? Professional historians may disagree. BUT.

Five years ago, Louisiana went through a disaster that reminded us all of what a family means. Some of us understand more deeply what being a family means. There are no rules. There are no guidelines. There are no boundaries or limits when it comes to family...

For the record, Katrina ISN'T MY FAMILY. I know ya'll disowned that B**** ,too.

I keep everyone on the Gulf Coast in my prayers. Every time we've been back to NOLA (and made the drive to Bama where more family lives) I'm impressed at the resilience I see. I feel for the fishermen, now, too, as I am the g-daughter of a fisherman myself. But the great state of Louisiana thrives because and endures despite, so I don't worry too much. ;)
