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!

Finding your roots - St. Alphonsus Church - ROOTS XX

From West Bank Genealogy Society Yahoo Group:

The Friends of St. Alphonsus is sponsoring ROOTS XX, on Saturday, March 26, 2011, at
St. Alphonsus Church, site of St. Alphonsus Art & Cultural Center, 2025 Constance Street,New Orleans in the Irish Channel, which will feature Salvadore J. Serio, genealogist and family research specialist to assist you in "Finding Your Roots." The program will begin at 9:00 am for registration and coffee. The cost is $20.00 person which includes a lunch of corned beef and cabbage with Irish soda bread. Reservations are encouraged for this popular event.

Mr. Salvadore Serio is president of the Cefalutana Society, vice president of the American ltalian Renaissance Foundation and past president of the Genealogy Research Society of New Orleans. He lectures and gives seminars on genealogy and genealogical research. Mr. Serio refers to the program as "Genealogy 101," for he will explain how to research using the internet, church records and public records at the Orleans and Jefferson Parish public libraries.

For those who have started their research, this will be an opportunity to continue with specific directions and further your knowledge of records available. For those just beginning, Mr. Serio will help you get organized and guide you along the path for success.

Several years ago, Sheila Larmann organized a class and a library of Irish research materials at St. Alphonsus, but the classes were interrupted by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Materials are still available and Mr. Serio will assist Friends in getting started once again.

The program will end with a tour of St. Alphonsus Church conducted by Mr. William "Bill"
Murphy. For more information and registration please email:  fosa2025@bellsouth.net.
