More and more Louisiana Genealogy and History

I have added Red River Sankofa to the list of Louisiana Genealogy Bloggers.  It is wonderful to see and read more Louisiana Genealogy Blogs!  The website describes cemetery preservation efforts of African American cemeteries in Northwest Louisiana – a bonus for this Graveyard Rabbit.  You should visit the Red River Sankofa  blog and website to read up on what is being researched and cemetery preservation efforts underway in Belcher, Louisiana.

Algiers Historical Society

This Saturday’s Algiers Historical Society event is going to be a particularly useful one.  Our neighbor, AHS co-founder and Algiers historian, Kevin Herridge will be presenting Tips on Researching Your Family, Your Home, Your City & More.  10 a.m. at the Carriage House behind the Algiers Courthouse, 225 Morgan, Algiers Point. 

It’s free and there will be coffee and cookies, thanks to our sponsor, Gizelle Richard, DDS. 

If you would like to become a sponsor and support our Algiers Oral History program, or simply make a donation or become an AHS member, email or call me at 504.322.7479.

The Algiers Historical Society was formed to promote and preserve the history of Algiers, through both formal historical research and the encouragement of storytelling by natives and long-time residents.  This history is shared through a quarterly newsletter called the “Algerine”, and through monthly meetings.  And soon it will be shared through audio recordings and an audio walking tour, pending completion of o ur oral history project.
Our monthly meetings are entertaining as well as informative, with different speakers and topics each month.  They are held on the third Saturday of each month, usually at the Algiers Museum (directly behind the Algiers Courthouse, 225 Morgan Street) at 10:00am.  Doors open at 9:45am. Free subscriptions of the “Algerine” are available to local libraries and schools.

Thanks again,
