Pointe Coupée Parish Civil Records

Collection 356

Pointe Coupée Parish. Civil Records, 1765-1967

Microfilm: 65 reels (35mm)

This collection contains civil records from Pointe Coupee Parish from the 18th and 19th centuries. Series include Original Acts, 1771-1836, and Conveyances, 1771-1859.

Most of 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 Manuscripts Collection in 2013.
