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 genealogy news from that Google thing

Here's a little write up about a rural family genealogist, Tina Martinson Ordone, in Rayne, Louisiana .  This is a nice article about what Tina has mastered in researching her family.

You can also read about the Trufant family of Seattle Seahawk fame who attribute their sons' success in football to Louisiana hot sauce and Tabasco. Lloyd Trufant, Marcus' daddy, grew up 20 miles south of New Orleans, according to this article from the Olympian at a school that didn't have a football team. (We're changin' that slowly in Louisiana - you here? There's a few more football teams in Louisiana since I have graduated from high school.  I'm proud of that, but can't take any credit whatsoever. )

There is also this story about the passing of Dr. Margaret Burroughs, co-founder of the DuSable Museum of African-American History in Illinois, who is from St. Rose, Louisiana.

There is also this book review from the Wall Street Journal about Brute Krulak who's grandfather, a Confederate, lived in Louisiana at one time.  I wonder where?
