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!

Antoine-Simon Le Page du Pratz's Louisiana

Why would one wait fifteen years to publish a book about Louisiana? Antoine-Simon Le Page du Pratz had to cover alot of ground at that time! Still. It is curious that he would wait such a long time to publish his work. I found this Google Book reference to Antoine-Simon Le Page du Pratz book about Louisiana.

- The Gentleman's Magazine (London, England), Volume 129, Page 389 top & 390 bottom, by 
F. Jefferies, 1821

Histoire de la Louisiane, Contenant la decouverte de ce vaste Pays;...[v. 1-3]

March of the Peace Pipe, by Antoine-Simon Le Page du Pratz 1758

- Le Page du Pratz signature on a letter to his mother from Natchez, 1 February 1724 Chicago History Museum. Image from Gordon Sayre, Associate Professor of English, University of Oregon (Mr. Sayre indicates that duPratz's title was never fully translated into English (dated 2010), but I found du Pratz's title in a Project Gutenberg ebook online since 2003. here. Perhaps a few things were lost in translation as Mr. Sayre offers a few more translations at his website. After all the title is a mere 255 years old.
