Facebook updates, my blog reads, cemeteries and Ancestry

Facebook sure did make a quick turnaround with its TOS. No sooner did I post the last news story to the Copyright RootsWeb mailing list about the potential suit filed, than Facebook issued a statement to the news that there was a “misunderstanding” with regards to its TOS. You can find a link from the RootsWeb Copyright mailing list on my earlier post. I suppose things have settled down now? We’ll have to see!

There are several other bloggers out there who are blogging Louisiana history. I found Detour Through History’s post about their recent visit URL to the Battle of New Orleans.

It seems that I am not the lone blogger when it comes to Louisiana’s cemeteries. There are one or two more! S. L. wrote recently in the Southern Graves blog an article about Charles Orleans, monument builder. S. L. was inspired by a book: Forever Dixie: A Field Guide to Southern Cemeteries & Their Residents, by Douglas Keister.

Ancestry has put online the Ibiblio database of Afro Louisiana History and Genealogy 1718-1820. I’ve found it much easier to search off of Ancestry due to their merciless sign in procedures. You can search the database here.
