There are many surname groups on Facebook in Louisiana. If you have friended me on Facebook, you can see the list. The following surnames appear:
VUELMANS MUES and COFFERS
FUSELIER de la CLARE
I have also found a Friends of the St. Charles Library, which was awesome ’cause I love libraries.
The one problem that I have with a group on Facebook is the inability to search discussion posts. A Yahoo Group or a Google Group allows for message searching (when that Yahoo Search message feature works.)
In light of current events i.e. The Oil Spill in the Gulf, I would encourage those of you who have never visited Louisiana or understand the plight of our state’s coastal regions to read this article, and when you are finished, join a Louisiana birding group on Facebook. Why? First of all, Louisiana birds are beautiful. Secondly, you may have a few less birds migrating next year and this will affect more than just Louisiana. Moving on….to more genealogy b/c I am ranting.
On my reading list this weekend was the The Robertson Family – Red River Sankofa blog. I enjoyed reading about the cemetery preservation efforts for Hettie Adgers cemetery, complete with photographs and transcriptions. I surfed around further found the site guestbook when noticed a link to a TNG site had been added recently. So I surfed on over…..but was disappointed to find that the site requires the admin to approve you before you view anything. Little did I know that Michael Hait had reviewed this site earlier this week, too. Read his review here about the website, Liberian Repatriates. I am looking forward to learning more about the site.
