Lafourche Parish Heritage Society

I was happy to read about the Laforuche Parish Heritage Society recently in the Daily Comet. The LAGenWeb Lafourche Parish website also announces a few surnames commonly found around the parish. Here is the RootsWeb mailing list archive page for Lafourche and the Ancestry message board. There are a few message boards at Ancestry.com that are “gatewayed” to the associated mailing list. The Lafourche Ancestry board, does not appear to be one of those that cross posts to its associated mailing list. The Ancestry message board is much more active than the mailing list. (In the last six months, there have been three messages posted to the mailing list.) The LAGenWeb Lafourche archives.

Lafourche Heritage Society news

Officials with the Lafourche Heritage Society invite you to join in a quest for the past and the future. South Louisiana is rich in its culture, folklore and historical buildings. Yet, time makes all these things so fragile.

Through genealogy, oral history and historic preservation, the Lafourche Heritage Society is keeping alive regional legacies.

The genealogy committee can help you find your origins — to learn from whom and from where you came. It can also help in preserving old photographs and family papers.

People who care about architectural legacy are finding innovative uses for once-abandoned buildings. They’re becoming homes, shops and offices. The Lafourche Heritage Society has an awards program that gives recognition for historic and creative preservation.

Through these and other endeavors the group is trying to safeguard the area’s rich cultural heritage.

If you are already a member, the society requires your continued support. The dues year runs from May of one year to May of the next.

Here is a list of annual dues:

– Student: $3

– Associate organization: $15

– Individual: $5

– Supporter: $50

– Couple: $10

– Corporate business: $25

– Contributing: $25

– Donor $100

Please make check payable to Lafourche Heritage Society.

For information, mail the Lafourche Heritage Society, P.O. Box 913, Thibodaux, LA 70302-0913.
