States: Louisiana: Orleans
Ellison: I too am a native (Lakeview/River Ridge/Mid City) and quite familiar with the Orleans Parish GenWeb site although I have no roots in the area so haven't really needed it. NOPL is a pain to visit, no patron public parking and restricted hours just don't work for me. Unfortunately, it's pretty much a "must" if you are researching in Orleans/Jefferson and surrounding parishes. The genealogy section of East Baton Rouge Public Library is overall a much better library - its located in the Bluebonnet Road branch. Link:
Much better yet is the Clayton Center for Genealogical Research in Houston - that's where I've done the bulk of my research. Rick
