 Ascension Parish
French: Paroisse de l'Ascension

 Ascension is a parish located in the U.S. state of Louisiana. It is one of the fastest growing parishes in the state. Its population is estimated to be 20,000 to 30,000 residents greater than the 2000 census. One of the major reasons for parish growth is the number of families wanting to move their children from the East Baton Rouge Parish public schools to the higher-performing Ascension public school system. For a time, Hurricane Katrina also brought in new residents from surrounding areas, but Ascension Parish President Ronnie Hughes said that the influx of hurricane victims has decreased and remains a small percent of growth.

Welcome to this Louisiana Genealogy Trails Website.

My name is Janice, and I am your host for Louisiana.  If you would like to submit data for this site, please email me with your submissions. Happy Trails to you on your quest for your ancestors.

This is a new site, fashioned after our successful
Illinois Trails websites, and we hope to soon add data here that can help Louisiana researchers as much as we've been able to help our Illinois researchers.

We need some help to do that though - volunteers to host these county websites. If you can make a basic webpage, and you have a desire to transcribe data for the free use of all researchers, we can use your talents!
Review our
Volunteer Information and email Kim.

In the meantime,
join our mailing list to be kept apprised of updates to this website.



Online Data
We intend to put data from all these categories online eventually. Feel free to contribute your data to this site to help it grow!
