Frequently Asked Questions


FAQ under construction... please come back soon!

  1. Where is Washington Parish on RootsWeb?

    LAGenWeb, used to be hosted by RootsWeb under the USGenWeb Project. Washington Parish was never listed on the parish/county page under Louisiana on RootsWeb. And in fact, LAGenWeb moved their archives along with many USGenWeb state archives from RootsWeb to two seperate servers in 2008. LAGenWeb and USGenWeb are no longer on RootsWeb. You can find the Washington Parish archive pages of LAGenWeb/USGenWeb here.

     

  2. How can I add my information to USGenWeb?

    Get Involved! We are looking for people to donate transcriptions of cemeteries, deeds, censuses, Bible records, etc. If you have a parish file you'd like to donate to help other genealogists and the USGenWeb Archives Project, submit it to http://www.genrecords.org/lafiles/ Louisiana Archives Submission Forms. For details on how to submit your files click here. It only takes a few minutes a day and it can help so many people.
