St. Mary Parish Civil Records

Collection 359

St. Mary Parish. Civil Records, 1807-1952

Microfilm: 158 reels (35mm)

This collection contains civil records from St. Mary Parish from the 18th and 19th centuries, including Conveyances, Estates, Successions and Probate Records, a District Court Minute Book, Suits, and Marriage Records.

The records were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City, Utah, during 1971 and 1972. 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.
