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!

Lafayette Genealogical Society Meeting - Using old and new maps in Louisiana

From the LALGS list:
Members of the Lafayette Genealogical Society,

This is your reminder that the regular monthly meeting of the Lafayette
Genealogical Society will meet this Thursday, April 21, 2011 at the South
Regional Library, 6101 Johnston St., Lafayette, LA beginning at 6:00 P.M.

Our guest speaker will be Ms. Carolyn French, who has received her Masters
and Doctorate degrees in History and Anthropology. Please plan to attend
and and hear how she used old and new maps to determine the changing make-up
of a part of a Louisiana parish.

Members will be updated on the Grand Revile Acadien/Great Acadian Awakening
to be held October 7-16, 2011 when we will be hosting Stephen White, author
and premier Acadian genealogist, here in Lafayette. Please consider what
you may do to help the society in this endeavor.

Another reminder is about the Louisiana Genealogical & Historical Society
that will hold a seminar on April 30th at the Embassy Suites in Baton Rouge.
Registration fee is $35.00. John Sellers, a genealogists living in Texas,
will speak on "What Are They Saying About Your Family in the Paper?", "Was
Grandpa His Brother's Keeper?", "Here Comes the Judge." and "The Other
Louisiana." He is both knowledgeable and entertaining, and may give us some
little gems to push us forward in our genealogical researches. Please let
me know if you are interested in going; several members are.

Dues will be accepted. Articles for our annual 2011 CD may be donated. The
Jefferson St. Library is now open and in working order! The genealogical
section is neat and complete. Kudos to all the librarians that made our
area open, user friendly, and available. Every member needs to make a visit
just to see the temporary library, and possibly USE it.

I look forward to seeing you at our meeting this Thursday evening.

Brenda Fuselier, President
Lafayette Genealogical Society
