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!

Lafourche Parish Heritage Society

I was happy to read about the Laforuche Parish Heritage Society recently in the Daily Comet. The LAGenWeb Lafourche Parish website also announces a few surnames commonly found around the parish. Here is the RootsWeb mailing list archive page for Lafourche and the Ancestry message board. There are a few message boards at Ancestry.com that are "gatewayed" to the associated mailing list. The Lafourche Ancestry board, does not appear to be one of those that cross posts to its associated mailing list. The Ancestry message board is much more active than the mailing list. (In the last six months, there have been three messages posted to the mailing list.) The LAGenWeb Lafourche archives.

Lafourche Heritage Society news

Officials with the Lafourche Heritage Society invite you to join in a quest for the past and the future. South Louisiana is rich in its culture, folklore and historical buildings. Yet, time makes all these things so fragile.

Through genealogy, oral history and historic preservation, the Lafourche Heritage Society is keeping alive regional legacies.

The genealogy committee can help you find your origins — to learn from whom and from where you came. It can also help in preserving old photographs and family papers.

People who care about architectural legacy are finding innovative uses for once-abandoned buildings. They’re becoming homes, shops and offices. The Lafourche Heritage Society has an awards program that gives recognition for historic and creative preservation.

Through these and other endeavors the group is trying to safeguard the area’s rich cultural heritage.

If you are already a member, the society requires your continued support. The dues year runs from May of one year to May of the next.

Here is a list of annual dues:

- Student: $3

- Associate organization: $15

- Individual: $5

- Supporter: $50

- Couple: $10

- Corporate business: $25

- Contributing: $25

- Donor $100

Please make check payable to Lafourche Heritage Society.

For information, mail the Lafourche Heritage Society, P.O. Box 913, Thibodaux, LA 70302-0913.
