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!

Researching my paternal GGgrandmother, Eliza Boubede. Born July 1842 or 43 in LA. She listed her father's birthplace as France & mother's as VA. She married Mazarine Carper from New Castle VA and their 1st baby was born 1857 in LA, leading me to believe they were married in LA. They moved to Baltimore,MD about 1859. They had 4 more kids and she died in MD 8/9/1919.
I have no solid connections in LA, but 2 items lead me to believe her father may have been a Jean Boubede b. 1813 in Dept de la Gironde, FR, whose obituary appears in the French language section of The New Orleans Bee in March 1855. I also suspect that Jean (Jeanty, or John) Boubede born 1837 may have been her brother as he lists a mother from VA & a father from France in a later census. There are so few hits for this name that these connections seem likely to me, but a lack of birth & marriage registrations keep me from getting the facts I need to back up my theories. I'd appreciate any help anyone can give.

I am trying to find information on GREEN FREEMAN JENKINS, born in Ga. in 1825, married DINAH JANE POULAN (1833-1916) in Bienville Parish, La in 1851, and died there in 1868. I am particulary looking for the cemetery in which he was buried and any information about his parents.
