Louisiana Obituary Records

There are very few places in the world quite like Louisiana. It is a place where thousands of people move to from other places and retire to and it is a place that has done an excellent job of putting many newspaper and library databases online. If you are looking for Louisiana Obituaries, consider just a few of the following links. RootsWeb has a page dedicated to the Baton Rouge area where you can look up listings from the 1950's and from 1980-1991. The USGenWeb Archives have a page dedicated to the amazing city of New Orleans. You can search listings extracted from various area newspapers, including the Times-Picayune. The Washington Parish Library offers listings from all over Washington Parish, including snippets taken from a half dozen local newspapers. Other than these main areas, many local libraries and local newspapers have archives online that you can search through, but many charge a small fee or haven't been updated in a while. You may be better off contacting the newspaper in the area you are searching by phone to see what they can send you via snail mail. Louisiana is a place where time moves a bit slower and the locals here wouldn't want it any other way.
