By understanding the history of the Catholic Church in St. Charles Parish, tracing your genealogy can be rather easy.  This section will provide you with the information needed to research your St. Charles Parish ancestors.

Please note that Genealogical research for Catholic Sacramental Records can be found for 1718-1825 in the Archdiocese of New Orleans Sacramental Records books which can be ordered from the Archives Department of the Archdiocese of New Orleans or found in most local libraries.  For periods 1826-1900 you must write to the Archdiocese Archives for information.  The procedure is listed on their website.  For records from 1900-current you must write to the individual churches below.  Please use P.O. Boxes where given for mailing purposes.  Each church establishes it's own procedures for genealogical research.
