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!

Veterans History Project - Free training

The Central Louisiana Red Cross will participate in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project which is launching with a free training from 1 - 5 p.m., on today, Nov. 30.
Created by Congress in 2000, the Veterans History Project of the American Folk-life Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.
The goal of the Central Louisiana Red Cross is to capture 200 stories of Central Louisiana veterans who have served in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, and the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. 

Adults and students in the 10th through 12th grade may complete the free training through the Red Cross and become volunteer interviewers. 

Seating is limited. Pre-registration is required by calling (318) 442-6621 or emailing learn@cenlaredcross.org.

The Central Louisiana Red Cross is located at 425 Bolton Ave. in Alexandra.
