There are also questions sets that can help you create your timeline. It also has a Family & Friends link, much like the neighborhoods and communities of My Blog Log and Blogcatalog.

I would like other Louisiana Genealogy information submitted to this blog and have made the email post option public – I think! You can email me to post to the blog @ Blogger or after joining the Yahoo Group, Louisiana Genealogy news, family surname information, general genealogy info, and road blocks or questions.
