U.S. Terretory 1805 - 18th State 1812
     Ownership of the Louisiana sector for the first 250 or 300 years of its discovery zig- zagged between France, Spain, and England until it was sold to the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Some of the quaint customs of the early French settlers have been perpetuated over the years and give the state an atmosphere of antiquity. Every school boy and girl remembers with nostalgic feelings Longfellow's "Evangeline," the poetic story of the transfer of large groups of French settlers from Nova Scotia to Louisiana. Many descendants of these Acadians still live in Louisiana where they are known as Cajuns.
     Rather than to fight against the mother country during the Revolutionary War, many loyal Britons moved their families from the Atlantic states to Louisiana where they have perpetuated themselves.
     On 1 October 1804 Louisiana was divided into two parts by Congressional action. The upper portion was given the name "District of Louisiana" and the lower portion "Territory of Orleans." Immediately after the formation of the Territory of Orleans, large numbers of Americans from south of the Ohio moved into the new acquisition. In 1805 Louisiana was divided into 12 counties and in 1807 the Orleans Territory was partitioned into 19 parishes. There is nothing different between a Louisiana parish and a county in any other state except the name. Otherwise everything is the same. Some of the early church parish records are now held by the parish or court clerks.
     For information regarding wills, deeds, divorces, civil court records and marriages write the clerk of the respective parishes.
     The State Registrar, Division of Vital Records, Department of Health and Human Resources, P.O. Box 60630, New Orleans, LA 70160, has records of birth and death for the state of Louisiana since 1914. This is generally true except for the parish of Orleans where records for births, deaths, and marriages are available as far back as 1790. (Please note that marriage records are available only if the license was purchased in Orleans parish). Additionally, some birth and death records for Caddo Parish are available since 1899.
