Bienvenue - Welcome to St. Landry Parish Genealogy

Imperial St. Landry Parish was established by a legislative act approved on April 10, 1805. St. Landry Parish (first called Opelousas County) was named for the Catholic Church Parish that was established about 1767 in the Opelousas Territory and named for St. Landry, the Bishop of Paris who served in 650 A.D.. However, the history of the area goes back many centuries before the parish was officially created.  Please see the "History" page.

Our parallel St. Landry LaGenWeb Archives site contains additional files that can be searched for genealogical records in your research. The records have been generously contributed by people like yourself. We are always looking for new record contributions to add to the value of the archives. Please contact me if you have any information to contribute to the St. Landry Parish Archives. Bryant Walker - LAGenweb Parish Site Coordinator and LAGenWeb State Archives Manager
