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 history

Today in 1893 - Huey P. Long was born. Here is a biography online. And here is an excerpt from a newspaper found online.

Today is Huey Long's Birthday August 30th. - From a 1973 edition available on NewspaperArchive.com

LSU Library resources - URL
Papers of Huey Long contemporary - URL
See also Gueydan Whiskey Siezure at the Vermilion Parish Historical Society website.

A Long, Long Time Ago, an exhibit chronicling the Longs and their influence in the
state, will be on display in the gallery at the Louisiana State Archives. It will feature photographs, newspaper articles, books and artifacts representing the family. The opening reception will be held Thursday, Aug. 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through September. URL

There is also a Huey P. Long Live Oak in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. The Live Oak Society indicates that an oak named, COPERNICUS in Gretna is second on the corner of Huey P. Long Ave and 8th. There is a notation that said the oak used to be named Huey P. Long or the street was named Huey P. Long. ( I can't determine right away.) Google has a collection of Live Oaks, too. You can catch up on Live Oaks and their history in Louisiana here on this photo blog I found at WordPress.

Also on this day a "hot line" was created to avert mutual destruction:
The Washington-Kremlin “hot line” officially went live on August 30, 1963 and Kennedy publicly gave credit for proposing it.
