We hope that you enjoy your TLL Quarterly when it arrives. It’s all made possible through the hard work and contributions of our members. There is always a need for new materials to publish. Wanda Moore, our editor, needs a continuous flow of materials in order to provide the Society’s membership with a good, healthy variety of articles across the Lafourche, Assumption & Terrebonne parishes area in every issue. From time to time, her reserves dwindle and she has to include more info in one area of research than another.
Sometimes you may run across interesting materials in your research that may not directly apply to you but may be of interest to or apply to others in the Society. At that time, consider obtaining a copy of what you find or abstracting the pertinent info and work it up into an article for the Quarterly. If you don’t feel comfortable writing these things up, pass the info on and someone else can get them ready for inclusion into the Quarterly. But please include your contact info in case some clarifications are necessary. Even if it’s just a 5-generation chart on your family, we would like to have a little input from all our members. And don’t forget pictures. Share them too, if you have them, especially the old ones, and you feel comfortable sharing.
Don’t forget about Queries. If you’re faced with the old proverbial Brick Wall, send us some info pertinent to your needs and we’ll put it out there for others to see. Someone out there may have the answer you seek, or at least point you in the right direction. And don’t forget to send us the answer for inclusion in the Quarterly, if one is provided. You never know who else has that same brick wall.
