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!

Mail Planes II


First mail airplane
1925. First mail airplane to arrive from New Orleans sitting on an airfield. Image of a mail airplane, the first to arrive from New Orleans, sitting on an airfield in Chicago, Illinois. A crowd is standing in the background. Text on image reads: First mail plane from sunny south, New Orleans. Chicago Daily News Photo from: Hello New Orleans URL

The book below indicates that the first mail plane came to New Orleans in 1912,
but the Hello New Orleans photo, above, cite that the first flight was in 1925.  
Included on Hellow New Orleans were photos of the pilots:
Lieutenant V.J. Meloy and Captain Herbert Fox, pilots of first mail plane from
New Orleans 1925.

It is impossible to create the second air mail trip to New Orleans in 1912,
if the first flight was in 1925. So who is right?

Hello New Orleans? or the Louisiana Writers Project?
