Tips to Research Military Ancestors on Memorial Day
Bloggers announced that WorldVitalRecords is offering free access until June to military records.
Surfing my mailbag I ran across a few notes from fellow Louisiana genealogy bloggers concerning Live Oak Plantation and one query concerning the BLACKWELL surname of “Live Oak Plantation”. There is one internment noted on FAG at “Live Oaks Plantation” in Iberville Parish, where the Political Graveyard has listed him as: Thomas Withers Chinn US Rep 2nd Dst 1839-1841 who was reinterred to Live Oaks Plantation Cemetery with a cenotaph at Magnolia Cemetery in Baton Rouge, LA. Do you suppose there may be more than one Plantation named Live Oak? Yup. Here is another Live Oak Plantation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in an article from The Advocate. So that places Live Oak Plantations in Iberville Parish, Baton Rouge, Lafourche and East Carroll Parish? Curious isn’t it? Now if we could get folks to designate the parish or the city Live Oak Baton Rouge Plantation, Live Oak Iberville Parish Plantation, maybe this search wouldn’t be so confusing!
