East Carroll
French: Paroisse de Carroll Est

On March 14, 1832 the Parish of Carroll, was created out of the northern part of the original Concordia Parish created in 1809 and the eastern part of Ouachita Parish. Carroll Parish was named in honor of Charles Carroll, a philanthropist, statesman and signer of the Declaration of Independence. In 1855 the courthouse was relocated to Floyd, which is now in West Carroll Parish. Lake Providence was the first seat of government. Carroll Parish was divided into two parishes in 1877. The Bayou Macon forms the boundary line between the two. The division solved a feud over the site of the seat of government. Oak Grove was named the parish seat of West Carroll Parish. Lake Providence became the parish seat of East Carroll Parish.

Welcome to this Louisiana Genealogy Trails Website.

It is our goal to help make this a free and informative place for information on our ancestors who were born, settled or traveled the trails through the state of Louisiana for other lands. If you have information to add please email us with your submissions.

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!
