RootsWeb is home to over 31,000 mailing lists and list archives. There are surname lists, too. I’ve been searching for another surname list to join. I have even subscribed to a few foreign language lists. Google translate makes things so much easier to join a foreign speaking list and post your query’s.

I have updated the Louisiana Surname list, but I have not updated the Louisiana Genealogy Connections calendar. It seems that genealogy takes a back seat to major holidays … especially in Louisiana when food is involved. If your email addy needs updating, or your surnames need to be updated, please drop me an email and let me know (I’ll fix your plate! LOL) .
I hope that everyone has a safe holiday!
