BOOKS & Other Useful Parish Information

 

Where in our research would we be without books?  Whether it be Parish or County, at some time or
another in genealogy research, you are going to have to go to the library to look at one or a thousand, order one, ask someone to do a look up in one, check at the county courthouse, and come into contact with BOOKS.  I am listing here books that I have come across that may be helpful in your search..........if you know of other books that have helped in your searching in this or surrounding Parishes, let me know, and I will post them here also.
