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!

Death of a southern duelist Joseph Pepo Lluta / Llulla March 1888

See also Dueling Oaks .   Pepe owned St. Vincent de Paul cemetery where it is rumored he buried his victims.  Photos of Lulla and his tomb are here along with a local obituary notice.

It is odd to note the various spelling of his name from both Llulla and Lluta.

The NY Times offers this story of a duel / assassination attempt upon Llulla.  It is reported that Llulla was the lone resident of Grand Terre after retiring there after 1878, however, NYT newspaper archive reports that Sgt Hooten and Sgt Walsh (Ordinance Sgts ) transferred in and out of Fort Livingston in 1881. Still other reports from 1974 declare that all guns were dismounted in April 1872.  This NYT article reveals that  all big guns and other heavy armament were left at Fort Livingston "owing to the lack transportation". NYT Feb. 17, 1889.

 You can see why anyone would have a problem with transportation with this photo from this pdf file pertaining to the erosion on the island and hurricanes.
