Welcome to this Louisiana Genealogy Trails Website.

If you would like to submit data for this site, please email us with your submissions. Happy Trails to you on your quest for your ancestors. This is a new site please help us make it grow. We are simply volunteers putting information out there for free.

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 do regret that we don't have the time to do any personal research. All data we come across will be added to this site.
Thank you for understanding.

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