>The Louisiana Genealogisphere

>Sphere is a wonderful search tool. I’ve missed it in the past few months and have quite a bit of catching up to do! I’ve found that I missed the Creole Heritage celebration back in October, but was able to catch up through their website, thanks to Caroline Dunn’s post , “National Creole Heritage Conference”. It just so happens she is a cousin of the Director, Janet Colson, of the Creole Studies Center at Northwestern Louisiana State University. The Louisiana Creole Heritage Center’s website has a wonderful tool that will allow you to add your Creole surnames to their database and also search for your surnames. The October 2007 celebration, which I sadly missed, offers a report of events, photographs and a commemorative PDF full of information about the event that transpired.

I surfed into C.S. Harris’ weblog this morning, as well. She celebrated Mardi Gras this year in Eunice, Louisiana, and offers a bit of her interest in genealogy. Candy’s blog has a few photographs from the celebrations this year and comments that she received an email from a long lost cousin, third cousin once removed, in Germany who has been quite busy tracing the family tree. I wonder if she’d share it with us? There is after all, a German Acadian Coast Genealogy Society in Louisiana. In their recent January meeting the society took a look at Church Archives in surrounding parishes. “…Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes, also Grand Isle in Jefferson Parish, Stephensville in St. Martin Parish and Morgan City & Amelia in St. Mary Parish.”

Here is another post about Louisiana Cajun genealogy, Vermilion Parish, and Abbeville, Louisiana, “…A Wealth of Cajun Names“, from a blog called Brighthaven Times.
