St. John the Baptist Parish Civil Records

Collection 360

St. John the Baptist Parish Civil Records, 1753–1899

Microfilm: 84 reels (35mm)

This collection contains civil records from St. John the Baptist Parish from the 18th and 19th centuries. Series include Original Acts, Successions and Probates, Marriage Licenses and Records, and miscellaneous records.

The records were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1964. The film was acquired by the Center for Louisiana Studies as an extension of the Colonial Louisiana Records Collection. That collection was transferred to the University Archives and Acadiana Manuscripts Collection in 2013.
