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!

J. Robb Bank

Into the New Year! I am looking at my bank .... ouch. I bet you didn't know there was a J. Robb bank in New Orleans. I wish I could see the bank note prior to December 13, 1858.  I would read the bank note:

"J. Robb Bank - 5 dollars"

The bank changed its name after that date to Merchants Bank.

LOUISiana Digital Library April 1859

Google Newspaper Archive and Search is over.... and it has wreaked havoc on my newspaper archive searching. Google decided mid year to stop processing its newspaper archive. I suppose this also included archive newspaper search for the individual newspaper chosen.  Can't seem to get the archive search to do what I want it to these days. There is more about Mr. J Robb from the NY TIMES Archive. Click the photo for the original.  (Also there was a steamboat disaster reported in January of  1855 which names the James Robb steamship and two others from St. Louis to New Orleans which sunk. The James Robb steamboat was owned by Capt. Carroll of Cincinnatti and Louisville. URL)
