Regarding Genealogy: Special Collections’ holdings of genealogical materials relate mostly to Louisiana. For tracing your ancestors before they came to Louisiana, the best local place to start is the Bluebonnet Branch of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library. Contact them at 225-763-2285 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org or Genealogy Section, Bluebonnet Branch, 9200 Bluebonnet Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70810.
