>The Louisiana Mailbag

>Here are a few genealogy posts and articles I found in my mailbox this morning. I also came across the GenHaven Blog and added it to the Genealogisphere. GenHaven has a chat room that is really helpful. They are worth checking out as they have over 800 members who share their genealogy search insights and information with the group.

I was shocked to read the APG mailing list recently. Evidently, someone has composed a fraudulent genealogy in Louisiana. The APG mailing list has posted the details. There are many genealogy sites out there and with them even more family trees. The first thing that I attempt to do when looking at a family tree, is attempt to confirm their source information. Source citations are important to print with your family tree information. I’ve found a plethora of information with regards to generating citations and bibliographies. I’ve been experimenting with Zotero recently. The program is easy to use, but I’ve found that writing down the information is the fastest way to document. I haven’t quite mastered the software, but I’ve enjoyed fooling around with the program this weekend.
