West Feliciana Parish Civil Records

Collection 370

West Feliciana Parish Civil Records, 1811-1855

Microfilm: 4 reels (16mm, negative)

This collection contains civil parish records from 1811 to 1855, although the dates vary for each series. The records include successions, notarial records, partitions, marriage licenses, Police Jury minutes, poll tax records, and a book of oaths.

The records were filmed by the Center for Louisiana Studies in 1976, as an extension of the Colonial Louisiana Records Collection. That collection was transferred to the University Archives and Acadiana Manuscripts Collection in 2013.
