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!

Meetings: Algiers Historical Society - West Bank Genealogical Society

From my Louisiana mailbag:

Algiers Historical Society Meeting

Our October meeting is tomorrow,  Sat, Oct.16th, 10 a.m. at  the Carriage House behind the Algiers Courthouse.

Howard MARGOT, of the Historic New Orleans Collection, will give a presentation on the soon-to-
be-released on-line, key-word-searchable version of the Vieux-Carré Survey, which documents (legally,
 photographically, architecturally) every lot and every structure in the French Quarter. Many of the images (e.g.,
 Notarial Archives Plan Book Plans) depict architectural types like Creole Cottage, Shotgun, etc. that can be found in Algiers from the same periods.

Hope to see you there.

Next month, Nov.20th - Wendy and Kevin will give a presentation on our 2009 trip to “Acadia” (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick
 and Prince Edward Island, Canada), in search of her BLANCHARD Cajun ancestors. Not to be missed! Aiyeee,

 Please watch Amy’s Thursday column in the ‘Times-Picayune’ for any changes in details.


  The 2010 Algiers Point Tour of Homes   The Algiers Point Association’s 37th annual Home Tour will take place Saturday, October 16th and Sunday, October 17th, from 11am to 5pm each day.  One of New Orleans’ most beautiful and historic neighborhoods – and, at 12 feet above sea level, one of its safest – Algiers Point’s wonderful homes are showcased in this annual event.  This year’s tour will showcase seven distinctive homes with a range of architectural and renovation styles as well as three churches.  In different ways, the homes – and their owners – represent the unique character of this beautiful neighborhood. They are all within an easy walk – one to five blocks – of the Algiers Ferry Landing, making it particularly easy for visitors to join us by coming across on the Canal Street Ferry. Each home will be staffed by volunteers who can answer questions about the neighborhood and about the home.  A map will be included in the brochure received at registration. Take the bridge or the Canal Street Ferry, a fantastic five-minute ride from downtown and the French Quarter, which runs until midnight every night.  The ferry departs the East Bank at 15 and 45 minutes after each hour, and the West Bank on the hour and half hour. Tour tickets are $12 per day in advance, $15 on the day of the event. Advance tickets can be purchased by calling (504) 361-0736, by mailing checks payable to “Algiers Point Association” to Steve Summers, 235 Olivier Street, New Orleans, LA 70114, at the Whitney Bank on 501 Verret Street, at Vine & Dine on 141 Delaronde, at Aunt Leni’s on 323 Verret Street, and at Tout de Suite on 347 Verret Street or by visiting www.algierspoint.org <http://www.algierspoint.org/> . During the tour, tickets can be purchased at the registration table in front of the Algiers Courthouse on 225 Morgan Street. Proceeds will benefit non-profit organizations and efforts in Algiers Point to promote tourism and to improve the quality of life in Algiers Point. For more information, please call the tour Chairperson, Nathalie Bastin at 504-361-0736 or nati1965@yahoo.com
