St. Martin Parish Civil Records

Collection 358

St. Martin Parish Civil Records, 1760-1915

Microfilm: 179 reels (35mm)

This collection contains civil records from St. Martin Parish from the 18th and 19th centuries, including Original Acts, conveyances, successions, marriages, and sheriff’s sales.

The records were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1982. 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.
