Welcome to Louisiana Genealogy Trails!


This Site Is Hosted By Lori DeWinkler

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic webpage-making skills, consider joining us!

Get the details on our
Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.  More information can be found on the
Volunteer Page.



We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for anybody.
