Richland
Parish


Richland Parish was created on September 29,1868 , from Ouachita, Carroll, Franklin and Morehouse Parishes and the parish was named in honor of its rich land . The Parish seat is Rayville . Certain sections of land now in Richland Parish were included in the land grants of Baron de Bastrop de Maison Rouge, whose obligation it was to bring settlers into the area. These lands in Richland marked the eastern extremity of Batstrop’s grant of over a million acres which had made him the largest property holder n the Louisiana Territory at one time

Welcome to this Louisiana Genealogy Trails Website.

My name is Janice, and I am your host for Louisiana.  If you would like to submit data for this site, please email me with your submissions. Happy Trails to you on your quest for your ancestors.

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.

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