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!

Franklin Parish Murder 1887

In reading this story this morning you would think that the woman was murdered by her own sisters. 

Don't come to any conclusions yet! If you search the LAGenWeb archives you will find another story written which makes the determination that the woman, Amanda Henderson, was the "other woman" not their sister.  Read the other part of the story here. The LAGENWEB story is written in a Georgia paper which indicates that Ed turned out his wife and another woman had moved into his home.  This made ED's sisters, Catharine, Lothe, Viola and Louisa, very angry where the four went to Ed's home and attempted to get the "other woman" to leave.  A fight ensued and ED killed his sister, Louisa, while defending Amanda,  ED's mistress. The mistress, Mandy or Amanda, was stabbed to death by ED's sister Catherine. Thomas escaped. Two women died, both ED's sisters.  The transcription concludes with, "Thomas succeeded in making good his escape."
