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!

On this day.....

In 1973 singer Jim Croce was killed in an airplane accident at Natchitoches, Louisiana. From URL

Prior to 1946 listing of plane wrecks from the US Coast Guard:

See also previous post for information about the above links regarding First Cemetery Cameron Parish
I don't know if the pilot (assumption) was ever identified or even if the type of plane he flew was ever identified (he was found still strapped into his seat.) I am left to wonder if this unknown burial in First Cemetery in 1946 was a member of the US military or US Coast Guard.  It seems more likely given the time period and looking at the statistics that this is true.  Hurricane Audrey 1957 left two markers in this cemetery. I sent an email out to Calcasieu in hopes that more is known concerning this burial that just isn't online, even though the transcript indicated Cameron Parish.

In 1946, the skeleton of an airplane pilot  
still fastened in his seat belt was

found on Broussard Beach. His unidentified  
 remains were buried here.
