Genealogy and Research

Sacramental records offer a wealth of information for genealogists.  Our records start in 1707 and contain baptisms, marriages and burials.

If you are interested in researching the Diocese of Baton Rouge Catholic Church Records published volumes, please visit the Main Branch of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System. Not in Baton Rouge? Check with your local library. Our published volumes are available at libraries across the country.

For records after 1900, policies have been created to provide researchers with reasonable access and to protect the privacy of individuals named in the registers. Please refer to our Sacramental Records Access Policy to see which Sacramental records are available for research.

Research is by appointment only. Please Contact Us if you are interested in setting up an appointment.
