LOUISIANA STATE ARCHIVES
The Louisiana State Archives holds records from Louisiana state government departments, commissions and offices covering the colonial period to the present. Historical records from the three branches of state government document the evolution of state public policy and its implementation, the rights and claims of citizens and the history of Louisiana and its people. There are also files from many non-governmental institutions, individuals, organizations and churches, as well as collections of tax lists and other official records from municipal governments.
The Louisiana State Archives is undertaking an ongoing project to make finding aids available online. Hard copies of finding aids are available to researchers at the Louisiana State Archives Research Library reference desk if they are not yet online.
Finding aids are in Adobe pdf format.
