Louisiana Cemetery Records
Preservation of burial sites in most states is a passing interest to most people. In the state of Louisiana, it is a passion that is wholly unique to this area. Thanks to the fact that above ground tombs are the burial option of choice here and due to the fact that the humidity and heat are so brutal, cemetery restoration is an absolutely vital function. If you are searching for Louisiana cemetery records, the first thing you should do is contact the cemetery caretakers in the parish they are located in to see if they have records on file. If you aren't sure where your loved one is located, the following organizations may help you find them.
The Louisiana Cemeteries Association and the Louisiana Funeral Directors Association work hand in hand with local burial sites to maintain the best possible records. There is also a huge grassroots movement in this state to maintain cemeteries, and you will find many different citizens groups that may be able to help. There are also three major military burial sites here: Alexandria, Baton Rouge and Port Hudson. If you need documents from this state, put down the phone and go online to place your order.
