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!

Missing soldiers, Blog Talk Radio, and Bousillage

I spent a good time this morning watching and listening to both YouTube and Blog Talk Radio. Megan Smolenyak gave an interview on Blog Talk Radio and discussed her work with missing soldiers. I am looking forward to the Blog Talk Radio episode about Louisiana's slave revolt on March 8th, 2011.

It all took place on January 8, 1811 a group of determined enslaved African was determined to rise up against slavery and take their own freedom and destiny into their own hands. Please join longtime activist and historian Professor Leon Waters, who has led tours of the area where the revolt took place for years. Water is also a founding member of the Louisiana Museum of African American History located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Water's great great grandfather, Hanniball Waters was an enslaved African on the James Brown plantation in St. Charles Parish escaped from the plantation and later served in the 1st Heavy Artillery Corps d'Afrique of the Union Army in the Civil War. Please join us for this very informative discussion. Also join us is Linda Hill, Curator at Southern University, New Orleans, (SUNO) Center of African American-Studies

I also visited Nurturing Our Roots on You Tube and NCPTT's video on Bousillage. What is Bousillage? Walls made of mud! You better watch the video and see how spanish moss is used. They are working at Oakland Plantation and will give you the run down on how to build a mud wall. Of course this is historical restoration work, and may not pertain to everyone, but in case you've got the urge to build a mud wall....
Well, here it is :) I thought it was kewl.
