Title: Louisiana Statewide Death Indeces 1900-1929
 

Statewide vital records, excluding Orleans and Jefferson Parishes, are nonexistent before 1911, so these relatives were not found:

  1. William McCLENDON, and wife

  2. Mary HAYS (HAYES) See: My McCLENDONs

Documents Received from Louisiana Secretary of State in regards to my requests

Documents that I requested from the State of Louisiana and their "Acknowledgement of Vital Records Research Request" reply

"In 1918 the Louisiana Legislature mandated the registering of births and deaths occurring in the state. Even though it was a state law, unless a person was born or died in a hospital, it was the family's responsibility to file the birth and death certificate. In the early 1950's, the funeral homes took over filing the death certificates. Before 1952 it is not unusual for there to be NO state death certificate on file. Your only recourse is to check for obituaries, coroner, probate or church records in the parish where the death occurred."

"The material or information requested does not exist in that time period. Statewide vital records, excluding Orleans and Jefferson Parishes, are nonexistent before 1911."
