Welcome to this Louisiana Genealogy Trails Website.

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. My name is Janice and I host the state of Louisiana. Please email me with your submissions.

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.

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