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!

Bayou coastal Louisiana Cemeteries and Louisiana Sea Grant efforts to document the GPS of a 16 parish area in Louisiana. Working on the project , Mary H.

Significant Accomplishments - [URL] Forty-three cemeteries located in thirteen parishes were recorded between July 2011 and October 2012. Of those cemeteries, 2 are partially submerged due to erosion, and 3 flood daily with the incoming tide. Four cemeteries are in severe disrepair due to storm surge damage post Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Two have severe damage post Hurricane Isaac. All cemeteries recorded have been inundated by a combination of one or more of the hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike and Isaac.
Many cemeteries in Louisiana are victims of hurricanes. First cemetery in Cameron parish was damaged in the 1950's due to Hurricane Audrey. Many of the headstones at this cemetery were noted to be lost due to Audrey, however, no recent (or ANY) photographs of this cemetery are online. According to a home demonstration pamphlet, brought to my attention both by a LAGenWeb cemetery transcript and a genealogy librarian of the local Calcasieu parish library, there is an unknown pilot buried at this cemetery in 1946. In reviewing the listing of IRS non-profit cemetery associations from 2011, there are ZERO cemetery organizations in Cameron Parish.
