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!

My Google Feeds are ugly & two obits: Bloglines and Vox blogs

My Facebook feed provided vital information concerning Bloglines recently. Bloglines is going the way of MSN Groups, Yahoo Geocities, and AOL's Hometown. I am uncertain what will happen to the javascript links provided on this blog by Bloglines and loathe the undertaking of sorting those links inside my Google feed reader. I quite simply do not have the time to sort out over 200 feeds into catagories. And so, much of the functional service that this blog provides may soon disappear with regards to the Louisiana Genealogy links to the left assigned by my Bloglines feed. You will find the list to the left and towards the bottom Bloglines provides a link to its doomed service. The Google Feed is NOT as pretty and would disturb my eyes. Google feeds are JUST too ugly. By October 2010 the internet will lose a valuable service to our Louisiana Genealogy Blog and see the death of yet, another internet service, Bloglines.

Vox blogging service will be deleted as well in the very near future. Vox is no longer accepting new blogs and has begun its outsourcing, if you will, of its blog services to TypePad. Vox will cease to exist by the end of September 2010.

The internet is full of broken links when it comes to GeoCities and AOL Hometown. I really hate that these service providers could not provide redirection or archiving.

So I suppose this is an un-official obituary of sorts for Bloglines and Vox. I hope that I will find a solution to my feed display in the next few months. I enjoy being able to access my Louisiana RootsWeb lists, sites and blogs. Not every link here is from Bloglines. Many of my links will remain intact, but I fear and loathe change and much prefer the comfortable stability of familiar surroundings. I know you understand.
