Louisiana. Civil District Court (Orleans Parish)
Index to deaths recorded in the Employers' Liability Agreements, 1915-1944

In 1914 the Louisiana Legislature passed the Burke-Roberts Employers' Liability Act (Act #20) to regulate the compensation due to workers (or their families) injured or killed on the job. The Employers' Liability Agreements record settlements made under the terms of the Act. In the case of workers the agreements record date of death and information relative to spouse and children.

This file indexes only the deaths included in this record series. We are entering data on a volume-by-volume basis starting with volume one in 1915. We will add further data as it becomes available.

The index currently is divided into two files: 1915-1924 and 1924-1943.
