Research discussions and help concerning any genealogical elements for the West Bank of the Greater New Orleans area. Since the West Bank evolved with people from far and wide, the extent of our research includes everywhere. You may join this free group (must click "Join This Group" and set up your membership, then sign-in each time you visit) to contribute information, discuss genealogy, make queries, post genealogical or heritage events, lurk, or just browse the links and our calendar to the left. If you wish to join our official society, the $20 dues may be sent to us at P.O. Box 872, Harvey, LA 70059-0872. Our quarterly publication, Gumbo Roots, is included in the fee. The membership year begins June 1st, meetings are held at 1:00 pm on the third Saturday of the month with a few exceptions. Please check our calendar for exact dates. We meet in the West Bank Regional Library on Manhattan Blvd in Harvey, LA in the LA History and Genealogy room where we remain after the business meeting for research. Some remain as long as 4pm, so if you can make it later there will be help.
