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!

Smithsonian exibit St. Martinville July 2011

Taken  from the Acadian Memorial News page chere:

May 28 - July 9, 2011
The Smithsonian is coming to St. Martinville!
Share your photos & stories to create part of the exhibition
About the Exhibition and Programming:
The Acadian Memorial Foundation has been selected by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities as a host organization for the traveling Smithsonian Exhibition Journey Stories, scheduled for display at Maison Duchamp May 28-July 9, 2011.

The Smithsonian Museum on Main Street program describes Journey Stories as using “engaging images with audio and artifacts to tell the individual stories that illustrate the critical roles travel and movement have played in building our diverse American society.”

Our task: Create relevant event programming and develop a portion of the exhibition for display here in St. Martinville. We want to tell our journey stories, the stories of OUR community. Who are the people that settled and shaped this area? How and why did they come? What are the results of their settlement and contributions to the community?

Our Project: Create a slideshow video and book from your photos and text to display at the Journey Stories exhibition in St. Martinville. We want to tell your journey stories and your ancestors’ journey stories. Make an appointment with us between September 1 and November 30, 2010. We will scan your photos; your original photo goes home with you!

How to get your photo(s) and stories into the exhibit:
1) Download, read & use the intake form posted on this website:
2) Call the Acadian Memorial or Steve Comeaux photography to make an appointment or ask questions
3) Come in for an appointment with your photo(s) and stories, typed or written on the back of the form
Read more about Journey Stories on the LEH website, in the "Museum on Main Street" section at www.leh.org/html/museum.html
