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!

Royal fuss - Great Britain refuses Louisiana

Yahoo this morning encouraged me to share my wishes and words of advice for the Royal couple in signing a Royal Wedding guest book. You've seen the wedding advertised everywhere, lately for Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Yahoo declared: "Share your wishes and advice for a happy marriage with the royal couple. Sign the guestbook and you'll be entered to win a trip for two to Las Vegas! More details."   I thought the announcement a little odd coming from Yahoo as America has no connection to the Royal family; minus our Independance, of course. Over 108 years ago, the Province of Louisiana was offered by Louis XV to Great Britain. Great Britain declined to accept. I wonder why? What would the history of Louisiana have been like if Great Britain accepted the Province of Louisiana? You can read the 108 year old story below. 

It was most interesting to note this quote: "I fear that any cession in the Gulf of Mexico might lead to serious consequences."
