Frequently Asked Questions

Basic Questions

I am new to genealogy and would like to know where to get started in Bossier Parish?

I would suggest that you explore "Resources". In this section you will also find many links to great sites for beginners. Also, just as important, you should post a query on the query board, join the email list and ask questions about your ancestors there. It has been my experience that the more places you ask the question, the better your chances of getting an answer.

You can also check out this page: Tips for Research in Bossier Parish.

I don't see XXX church or cemetery on your list.

If you do not see additional information, no one has sent that information to me to post.

The pictures are so tiny, I can't see them.

They are "thumbnail" pictures. Click on the picture for a larger view.

How do I submit information to you?

You can type the information in an email to me or attach a document (.doc, .txt) to the email.

Specific People:

I am looking for information about XXX.

Unfortunately, if you don't see it on the site then I don't have any information about it. I do not live in this parish, so am unable to check other resources. You can also give additional information here, just in case you do research for your parish and do live in the parish.

Can you send me a marriage license (or birth certificate, death certificate, court document) for my ancestor?

No, I'm sorry, but I do not have access to additional records. In most cases, you will need to check with the parish courthouse in order to obtain original documents. You can find contact information in "Addresses".

Can you look some information up for me?

If it's not on the site then I don't have the resource. Your best bet would be to ask on the email list. There are many people subscribed and it's possible someone has that resource available. You could also write the Library.
