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!

Hunley in Louisiana

Captain Horace L. Hunley's will and succession documents can be found at the St. Tammany Parish Clerk of Court? According to this post from the St. John Parish mailing list , URL,  Captain  Hunley was also a Covington, Louisiana plantation owner.  Covington is located in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. This 2005 article reveals a bit of background information on just how the Hunley records were lost and found. Below you will find the BLM GLO record dated May 10, 1860 is for land located in West Baton Rouge Parish for Horrace L. Hunley. Hmmm a mystery.  There are two other Hunley's available in the BLM GLO records:  H. S. Hunley 1883 St. Charles Parish and Henry Hunley 1838 Ouachita Parish. The LSU Library has more information about a submarine built by Hunley in New Orleans around 1861-1862.

The Louisiana Surnames - Louisiana Researchers list needs to be updated.  I haven't updated the page since February and it is now the end of April. Visitors have filled up an entire page since the last update. I am falling behind but will catch up with this task ....most likely after Easter.

Damon Veach's column Vol. 3 No. 5, April 11, 2011 was also a great read today :).  Also of interest were these articles on the same subject:  Louisiana State Museum and this article in the  Google Newspaper Archive.
