Throughout the State of Louisiana, markers have been placed at historical locations, many with significance related to our ancestors.
The Louisiana State Archives, a division of the Louisiana Secretary of State's office, is mandated to identify, to collect, to preserve, to maintain and to make available those records and artifacts that enhance our endeavors to understand the dynamics and nuances of our state's remarkable history.
The mission of the Archives Department is to collect, organize, preserve and make available for research the historical and vital records of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, as well as materials which reflect the work of the Church within the Diocese. The purpose of the Department is to promote an understanding of the Catholic Church, its history and its heritage in the community.
The Office of Archives and Records serves as the official repository for the records of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, supporting the larger mission of the Archdiocese.
The present Archdiocese of New Orleans includes the eight civil parishes in the greater New Orleans area: Jefferson; Orleans; Plaquemines; St. Bernard; St. Charles; St. John, St. Tammany; and Washington. In addition to housing materials for these civil parishes, the archives also holds Louisiana-wide material from earlier periods when the archdiocesan boundaries included all or most of the state.
This guide and the accompanying rolls of microfilm are being published by the University of Notre Dame archives under the sponsorship of the National Historical Publications Commission.
