Louisiana Public Records
Civil recording of Louisiana vital public records began in July 1914, with some records from 1790 for births, 1804 for marriages, and 1870 for deaths. The Louisiana State Archives maintains records over 100 years old for births and over 50 years old for marriages and deaths, with online searching at the Louisiana Secretary of State website; more recent records are subject to privacy laws. Copies can be requested from the Vital Records Registry, Louisiana Department of Health. The Louisiana Judicial Administrator, the administrative arm of the Louisiana Supreme Court, has supervisory jurisdiction over all courts, each of which maintains its own Louisiana public records.
