The Louisiana Division/City Archives provides limited search and photocopying services by mail. Researchers should be aware, however, that we cannot do extensive research for long-distance users. We can provide copies of material from certain sources that are clearly indexed and from indexed sources that are unique to our collections. (We do not, for example, provide copies of census records since the Federal Census schedules are widely available elsewhere.) We are also unable to provide copies of non-Orleans Parish records filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, due to prior agreements made with the Clerks of Court of these parishes.

Mail requests should be directed to:

Louisiana Division
New Orleans Public Library
219 Loyola Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70112
Detailed information on the Louisiana Division's by-mail search and copy services can be found at ordering copies can be found online at neworleanspubliclibrary.org/info/louinfo/louinfo2.htm.

Please note that these requests must come to us by regular mail. We are unable to take requests for photocopies by email. We are also unable to accept electronic payment at this time.
