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!

Friends of the Lafayette Library Book Sale

From Louisiana Book News Yahoo Group:
Book sale

The Friends of the Lafayette Library have hosted book sales for the past 31 years to raise more than a half a million dollars for the library. Because the Main Library downtown will be renovated beginning this spring, the book sale will move from the library to the Heymann Performing Arts Center.

“This is the first sale that the Friends have had in 31 years that hasn’t been at the library so naturally we are very anxious about our attendance,” said Flossie Turner, board member.

For one, Turner is worried the public won’t know of the book sale’s move to the Heymann so you’re hearing it here! And two, because of the Main Library shutting down and moving while the building is renovated, the sorting for the book sale has to be made offsite, then the books moved to the Heymann.

“This move continues to be stressful to us as well as the library staff as the library is still the point of donation drop off,” Turner wrote me by email. “This means a preliminary sorting at the library, then the move (by the library staff) to our sorting/housing facility.”

Once the spring sale is over, the Friends will start taking donations for their next sale. Drop-off location for donations will be announced at a later date.

The Friends of the Library Book Sale will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (preview sale for members only) on Monday, March 14 (and membership cost $5 for individuals so it’s worth it to join, then enjoy the early bird sale). The sale open to the general public will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, March 15 and 16 and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 17. All books will be sold by the inch, 50 cents an inch for paperback and $1 an inch for hardbacks.
