I browsed a few Louisiana genealogy blogger’s blogs this morning. It was quite enjoyable. A few of my blog listings need to be updated. I stopped in at Family Friends and Neighbors, a St. Charles Parish blog, and had a good time reading inquest material and then on to My Big Fat Family blog and viewed her photos of a family fishing trip in Southwest Louisiana. There were more photos to enjoy in East Carroll Parish . Here, I nearly fell outta my chair. She posted a photo of an old Fire Engine from Providence, Louisiana Fire Company No. 1. A photo circa 1893! The Coffey/Coffee Call blog has much interesting information about a WWII missing person, ……..or so they thought.
I noted, too, that I missed a few news articles. One of which were three appointments to the Historical Records Advisory Board from earlier in the month of May.
In my mail bag was a post concerning an arch. dig in Nova Scotia, Treasures of Grand Pre.
“In 1755, the site was the centre of an Acadian village. It is thought that the original parish church stood there. It has long been a site of national significance. After the 1755 Acadian deportation, English settlers, called the New England Planters, moved to the area in 1760. “
