"Learning More About What is Available to Family History Researchers on
the Internet and Elsewhere" is the theme for the next meeting of the
Washington Parish Genealogy and History Society. The speaker will be
Carolyn Henderson of Tangipahoa Parish. Carolyn is a member of the
Tangipahoa Chapter of the DAR.
Carolyn started as a volunteer with the USGenWeb program about two years
ago. That is when she began her work with the Washington Parish
website. She has been responsible for maintaining it since that time.
Besides discussing what is available on the Washington Parish website,
Carolyn will also talk about the archives, research on the web, and
links to research sites. She will also give some information on
courthouse research and on the Louisiana Archives. She will have
handout materials available.
The meeting time is 5:30 pm on Tuesday, November 13, 2001, at the
Franklinton Branch of the Washington Parish Library. Both members and
non-members are urged to attend.

Mrs. E. Burke Collin's husband died of a gunshot wound in Ponchatoula
Louisiana on February 11, 1872. Sometime later Mrs. Collins married Robert
R. Sharkey (Planter) I do not know the date. I have not been able to find
any information on Robert Sharkey other than Planter.
Mrs. Robert R. Sharkey (aka Mrs. E. Burke Collins) was a published dime
novel author. I have found information stating she lived in Tangipahoa in
the summers and New Orleans in the winters. I cannot find her date of death
or any other information on her. I contacted the Celebration of Women
Writers site and had them list her name on their site on the internet. I
contacted New York and they now have copies of her book covers on their New
York Dime Novel Site.
Any information you or anyone in your group could add would be greatly

Joseph Sumrall will present a program on "How to Inventory a Cemetery" at the
next meeting of the Washington Parish Genealogical and Historical Society.
Mr. Sumrall has done much work in cemeteries in MS and LA. Several MS
counties have had his findings compiled into books so that researchers like
ourselves can have ready access to the information. Mr. Sumrall will
demonstrate to us a systematic way of doing an inventory of this type. (This
program had been planned for an earlier date and had to be postponed.) The
group will also discuss plans for the upcoming display at the Washington
Parish Fair. We will have an educational display in the Armory Building.
The display has been planned already. Some of us will need to work a shift
at the display during fair hours. Russ Williams will be here also. He is
excited about being able to be at the display. In his publications about
Washington Parish history, he likes to use this opportunity to visit with
folks and gain new information. Information about our group, as well as
membership applications, will be available at our booth. It will also
contain educational materials about genealogical work. Please make every
effort to attend this important meeting of our group. We will meet at 5:30 pm
at the Bogalusa Branch of the Washington Parish Library. Our meeting date
is Tuesday, October 9, 2001. Sylvia
