This is the most current list that I have of all of the Louisiana related Yahoo Genealogy Groups. There are a few more, I’m sure. You will have to watch out for spammy groups, though, as I’ve encountered a few of those types on Yahoo. Periodically, I check to see if there are any new sites. These are a few that I have surfed into recently. Some are new and a few have been around for quite some time … flying in under my Louisiana genealogy radar. I’m going to have to update MSN and Google Groups, too, just as soon as I can remember how. It seems that the MSN sites and Google sites do not get my attention as much as Yahoo does. I noticed that there are a few more family surname Yahoo! Groups in Louisiana, too. So here’s a little Yahoo! Louisiana Groups, “Hi Ya’ll!”.
