Iberia Parish Civil Records

Collection 353

Iberia Parish. Civil Records, 1775-1971

Microfilm: 44 reels (35mm, 16mm)

This collection contains civil records from Iberia Parish beginning in 1868, when the Parish was founded. Series include Conveyances, Marriage Records, Probates and Successions, and miscellaneous records. Most series end in the 1880s, except the Marriage Records, which continue through 1916. Indexes continue through 1971. All are on 35mm film except the Darby Abstract which is on 16mm film.

The records were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1971. 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 Manuscript Collection in 2013.
