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!

I have been reading a few Louisiana newspaper articles today, mostly current ones published online within the last 5-10 days or three years. Two articles stood out. I have a little link list to a few Louisiana newspapers that has quickly become out of date. Many Louisiana newspapers, like the St. Tammany News & Covington's, The News Banner, have ceased publication. Not surprised to read about the deaths of many other local newspapers at the Newspaper Death Watch (founded March 2007), but this online publication, written by Paul Gillin,  missed both of those newspaper obituaries. You can try to read a few online newspapers from my old list here.

  • I especially enjoyed reading this editorial:  Long live the art of penmanship Is penmanship becoming a lost art? Read more Personal letters are always a treat for future generations to mull over while researching family history. Not many schools today place emphasis on student handwriting or personal letter writing especially with the popularity of email, YouTube, and texting. You're probably more likely nowadays to receive a text than you are a personal letter!
    In regard to the furnishing of liquors to soldiers mentioned in your letter of the 6th, you will apply to the city authorities to take steps to prevent it. If such application fail to have the desired effect you will then give public notice to all vendors of liquors, that all such proven to have sold liquor to soldiers after the publication of the notice will have their supplies of this nature destroyed. This by the authority of the Comdg. Genl., and in all cases you will act promptly and vigorously. - See more at: http://blogs.lib.unc.edu/civilwar/index.php/2013/03/09/9-march-1863/#sthash.r5osouRT.dpuf
