Louisiana genealogy news from that Google thing

Here’s a little write up about a rural family genealogist, Tina Martinson Ordone, in Rayne, Louisiana .  This is a nice article about what Tina has mastered in researching her family.

You can also read about the Trufant family of Seattle Seahawk fame who attribute their sons’ success in football to Louisiana hot sauce and Tabasco. Lloyd Trufant, Marcus’ daddy, grew up 20 miles south of New Orleans, according to this article from the Olympian at a school that didn’t have a football team. (We’re changin’ that slowly in Louisiana – you here? There’s a few more football teams in Louisiana since I have graduated from high school.  I’m proud of that, but can’t take any credit whatsoever. )

There is also this story about the passing of Dr. Margaret Burroughs, co-founder of the DuSable Museum of African-American History in Illinois, who is from St. Rose, Louisiana.

There is also this book review from the Wall Street Journal about Brute Krulak who’s grandfather, a Confederate, lived in Louisiana at one time.  I wonder where?
