Selected Bibliography of Genealogical Materials
 
Edith Garland Dupré Library is pleased to provide facilities for research in genealogy and family history. While the Library contains information on every part of the United States and many foreign countries, the focus of its genealogical holdings is the Acadiana region of Louisiana.
 
This bibliography is intended to provide general information for genealogical researchers who are considering using this collection. The bibliography is not comprehensive, but gives the most frequently used titles in this field. Too numerous to include are family histories, local histories and transcriptions of records from specific localities. Also not included are materials from other states; these can be identified through the Dupré Library’s online catalog.
 
The Louisiana Room staff and the Reference Department librarians are available for general assistance; however, the responsibility for such difficult and time-consuming work as genealogy rests with the researcher. Regrettably, library administrative policy and staff shortages make it impossible to provide genealogical reference service by mail or over the Internet.
 
This bibliography was compiled by Jean S. Kiesel (jkiesel@louisiana.edu).
