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!

Morris & Johnston, Liquors & Wines, Belle Island, Louisiana

I am STILL looking for an answer to this post in GenForum Louisiana

"We have an old stoneware liquor jug marked "Morris & Johnston, Liquors & Wines, Belle Island, La." and I was wondering if anyone knew of that group or when they were in business?" --Scott


There are seven pages of MORRIS records in Lousiana land patents and likely thousands of JOHNSTONS. I'm off to look at records.  Comment if anyone else is up for the challenge and finds a record before I repost.

One of the MORRIS records indicate St. Mary Parish under the name John Morris 1848.
Between 1848 and 1862 an additional parish was located between St. Mary and St. Martin...Iberia. Terrebonne is an adjacent parish.

I did immediately find an interesting plot of land in Terrebonne Parish 1920's. But no records for Johnston near Iberia/Iberville Parish or St. Mary Parish. The interesting Terrebonne Parish find at the BLM GLO site records the following names in ownership of twenty-four and one half acres in Terrebonne Parish.  I wonder why they all pitched in....the depression...or something else?
