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!

Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board

The Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board was created by executive order in 1998 to coordinate and facilitate the efforts of historical records repositories and other informational agencies within the state of Louisiana in the collection, preservation, and publication of the important historical documents of the state. The Board consists of twelve members who are appointed by the Governor. The State Archivist chairs the Board and serves as the State Historical Records Coordinator.

The Mission of the Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board (LHRAB) is to assist in, support, coordinate and advocate the identification, collection, preservation, management, use and accessibility of records that document all of Louisiana's people, communities, organizations, businesses, and governments. It is the Vision of the LHRAB that the historical records of all Louisiana's people will be identified, collected, preserved, maintained, made available to and used by Louisianians to increase their knowledge of the history and cultures of this diverse state and to ensure their rights.

Project Title: "Louisiana Libraries Archives and Museums Preservation Project"
The Louisiana Archives and Manuscripts Association, in collaboration with the Louisiana Association of Museums, Le Comité des Archives, and the Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board, will survey 550 cultural heritage institutions in 64 parishes across a largely rural state. This Web-based survey will provide a broad overview of the preservation status of historical materials and collections statewide.
