I had a hard time finding it, too. There are many missing or misdirecting links en route.

The project page is here. The how-to-join link on that page takes you here.

The instructions for joining send you to this G2G post, where you discover, after reading a warm and inviting introduction, that they're not accepting new members pending a reorganization.

I added a Louisiana tag to my followed tags list a while back, when I first tried to join. I wondered why I hadn't seen them in my feed; turns out, while tracking down the URLs for this post, I discovered I should have added Louisiana_Families. I just now changed it. So we'll see.

If the project isn't open for business, that information really should be on the project page, which is hard enough to find, with instructions to add the tag.

Just sayin'.

You can start by adding better tags: Louisiana_Families and Louisiana-- so they'll see the question. You asked this question in March and I only just lucked across it in September! The project has been undergoing reorganization and has added new leadership. It's in much better shape now. Send me a pm and we'll get the ball rolling for you.
