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!

Password security issues and friends not so quickly forgotten

I have been on something of a hiatus the past few months. I'm looking forward to getting back to it...but just not right now.

One of the items that needed to be addressed here was that Yahoo passwords were hacked. I fixed the Yahoo email issue with my account_s , although it is likely a temporary fix because hackers are constantly revising ways to get into your email accounts and so forth. The second issue was that someone ELSE was named on this blog as an author and was authorized to post here. I don't recall giving anyone else permission on this blog. I removed it. Strange. I have no idea why someone else would want to author this blog other than to just harass. Nothing that I know of was posted and so the hacked permitted email address was just sitting there staring me in the face after I logged in as if to say.....WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? WHY ARENT YOU POSTING? IVE BEEN SITTING HERE WAITING FOR MONTHS NOW. LOL So... I Removed Jim something or other who has a comcast.net account from being an author.

As if THAT wasn't enough of an issue with Blogger, I had to go over all of my email accounts and reset all of my passwords - including Twitter, LinkedIn etc.

About FACEBOOK. It appears that FACEBOOK has now allowed to edit discussion posts and also allows other to peek into your edited discussions. It is a nice feature that should be added to INITIAL POSTS. These posts should equally be editable - BUT ARE NOT.

FACEBOOK, continuously requests that I add a friend, whom I know is deceased. It saddens me every time I see the request in the sidebar. I have turned this into FACEBOOK with statements, copies of obituaries, photographs, memorials etc., however, FACEBOOK refuses to acknowledge that my friend, who was new to FACEBOOK and much preferred email to FACEBOOK, IS DECEASED. This is what brought me back to Blogger. This would be okay, if it had only happened once. But I know far too many people who have become Facebook memorial sites...
