If you haven’t read the April 6th edition, you better scramble on over to Claitors and read! Mr. Veach discusses: Missin’ Mississippians, Special Building-Special Occassion, Morris-Duncan-Kidd, McDonogh Tradition, Forensic Genealogy, Vital Records and Querys.
(I have a few missing relatives in Mississippi, too. We are neighbors after all!)
Mr Veach states that querys are published free.
Louisiana Ancestors column format is the oldest of its kind in the United States, and it is now available by way of the Internet. If you are interested in continuing reading and enjoying these column formats, you need to know that it is now a part of Claitor’s Publishing Division’s outstanding collection of publications (http://www.claitors.com). Queries are published free and can be any length but should have a Louisiana connection by heritage or by a state resident working on lines in other areas. Books, society publications/newsletters, dated notices, and other data of importance will be reviewed if copies are submitted with each request. All materials are then donated to the Veach-Foshee Memorial Library Collection in Mansfield, Louisiana, where all the material will be available for research. It is one of the largest genealogical collections in the state and is the property of the DeSoto Parish Historical Society and housed in the Mansfield Female College, the oldest college for women west of the Mississippi River. The property is a part of the complex of museums under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of State.
All correspondence concerning this can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The snail-mail address is CCPP Ancestors Column, 709 Bungalow Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70802-5337.
This is a special service to genealogical researchers and for promotion of all genealogical and historical societies in the state and in other areas of the country. Volume 1, Number 1 will begin immediately on a weekly basis.
