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. The membership year begins June 1st, meetings are held at 1:00 pm on varied days of the month since Katrina when we can get the meeting room (check the calendar on this group site for exact dates). When we cannot get the meeting room, we have research meetings in the LA History and Genealogy room at West Bank Regional Library at 11 a.m. Our quarterly publication, Gumbo Roots, is included with the membership fee. The meeting venue is still subject to change due to library scheduling practices, so be sure to watch our calendar for place and dates.
