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.
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!
