The Center for Louisiana Studies

The Center for Louisiana Studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has a large collection of recorded materials (audio and video, with a lesser number of photographs) pertaining to Cajun and Creole culture. If you have Louisiana ancestors, this online finding aid may reveal items of potential interest.

You should certainly begin researching your Louisiana ancestors at SLPL. We own books, periodicals, microfilm sets, and reference databases that all contain records that deal with ancestors who lived in the Pelican State. To get started, enter these keywords in the SLPL Online Catalog:
