The New Orleans Genesis – Genealogical Research Society of New Orleans

The New Orleans Genesis, the quarterly publication of the Genealogical Research Society of New Orleans, has been published since 1962.   Although many of the earlier issues have been out of print for some time, until recently the Society has been able to fill orders for many of the back issues.   Unfortunately, many issues were lost when our warehouse was destroyed in the 2005 hurricane.

The following issues are now out-of-print, and no longer available.   Issues #1- 47,49; 51; 52; 53; 56; 57; 58; 65; 66; 69; 70; 75; 81; 83; 84; 85; 97; 105; 117; 127; 137; 140; 145; 147; 149; 151; 154.

Issues that survived are now offered for sale, priced according to availability.   In cases where only a limited number of copies remain (sometimes as few as one or two) they are priced at $5.00 each, postage to be added.   These issues, once sold, will not be reprinted.   In cases where the stock of back issues is larger, they are priced at only $2.00 each, postage to be added.

Current issues are available at $7.50 per copy.

In all cases, orders will be filled on a first-come basis, determined by postmark.   Back issues are shipped media rate so as to reduce, as much as possible, the cost of postage.

PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT PAYMENT WITH YOUR ORDER.
PLEASE WAIT FOR CONFIRMATION OF FILLED ORDERS AND POSTAGE COSTS.

LAA – Louisiana Adoption Advocates received a personal reply from Sen. Mary Landrieu:

December 7, 2012

Dear Mrs. Lew:
Thank you for contacting me regarding Louisiana Senate Bill 155 (SB 155). As you know, this bill was recently defeated in the Louisiana state legislature. Though this is a state bill and therefore not within my jurisdiction as a United States Senator, I appreciate you taking the time to write me and would like to respond to the concerns you raised.
As a mother of two adopted children, I understand the pain experienced by adoptees longing to find their biological relatives. Still, I recognize that SB 155 would have violated the confidentiality pledged to birth mothers of adopted persons. Louisiana is contractually obligated to uphold its agreement with a biological parent, regardless of how far in the past the agreement took place.  The Louisiana Adoption Registry now in existence to connect willing adoptees and willing birth parents is not perfect. Consequently, I want to work with advocates on both sides of this issue and the Department of Children & Family Services to improve the registry so that it is more effective in reconnecting biological relatives. I invite you to be part of this effort.
As Co-Chair of the Congressional Adoption Caucus and Co-Chair of the Congressional Foster Care Caucus, I believe that all children deserve safe, permanent families. I am deeply committed to making our state and our nation’s adoption systems efficient. Please know that I welcome any further input from you or similarly concerned citizens of Louisiana.
Again, thank you for contacting me about this important matter. I trust you will continue to contact me about issues of mutual concern. Please visit my website at http://www.landrieu. senate.gov  more information on other legislative issues. 
With warm regards, I am
Sincerely,
Mary Landrieu
United States Senator
P.S. For a recap of my week in Louisiana and Washington, D.C., be sure to sign up for my weekly eNewsletter by visiting http://go.usa. gov/2sb.  And for my latest updates, like my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter.
MLL:mb 

There is also this Query posted to the Louisiana  Ancestry.com message boards.  It is great when we can all lend a helping hand to one another!

I was wondering if anyone out would like to take a picture of a headstone for me
 (Carollton Cemetery). Please contact me at anarumery5 at netscape dot net. Thanks,–Ana

Password security issues and friends not so quickly forgotten

I have been on something of a hiatus the past few months. I’m looking forward to getting back to it…but just not right now.

One of the items that needed to be addressed here was that Yahoo passwords were hacked. I fixed the Yahoo email issue with my account_s , although it is likely a temporary fix because hackers are constantly revising ways to get into your email accounts and so forth. The second issue was that someone ELSE was named on this blog as an author and was authorized to post here. I don’t recall giving anyone else permission on this blog. I removed it. Strange. I have no idea why someone else would want to author this blog other than to just harass. Nothing that I know of was posted and so the hacked permitted email address was just sitting there staring me in the face after I logged in as if to say…..WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? WHY ARENT YOU POSTING? IVE BEEN SITTING HERE WAITING FOR MONTHS NOW. LOL So… I Removed Jim something or other who has a comcast.net account from being an author.

As if THAT wasn’t enough of an issue with Blogger, I had to go over all of my email accounts and reset all of my passwords – including Twitter, LinkedIn etc.
WHAT A PAIN.

About FACEBOOK. It appears that FACEBOOK has now allowed to edit discussion posts and also allows other to peek into your edited discussions. It is a nice feature that should be added to INITIAL POSTS. These posts should equally be editable – BUT ARE NOT.

FACEBOOK, continuously requests that I add a friend, whom I know is deceased. It saddens me every time I see the request in the sidebar. I have turned this into FACEBOOK with statements, copies of obituaries, photographs, memorials etc., however, FACEBOOK refuses to acknowledge that my friend, who was new to FACEBOOK and much preferred email to FACEBOOK, IS DECEASED. This is what brought me back to Blogger. This would be okay, if it had only happened once. But I know far too many people who have become Facebook memorial sites…
