These are the published sacramental records (baptism, marriage, interment) of the Diocese (now Archdiocese) of Baton Rouge since its founding. As of Summer 2011, the Diocesan Archives has published Vols. 1-22, covering records for the period 1707-1900. For convenience in selecting the correct volume, a checklist of coverage follows:

v. 1. 1707-1769
v. 1a. 1707-1748 (Registers of St.Charles aux Mines in Acadia)
v. 1b. 1722-1769 (Pointe Coupée Records)
v. 2. 1770-1803
v. 3. 1804-1819
v. 4. 1820-1829
v. 5. 1830-1839
v. 6. 1840-1847
v. 7. 1848-1852
v. 8. 1853-1857
v. 9. 1858-1862
v. 10. 1863-1867
v. 11. 1868-1870
v. 12. 1871-1873
v. 13. 1874-1876
v. 14. 1877-1879
v. 15. 1880-1882
v. 16. 1883-1885
v. 17. 1886-1888
v. 18. 1889-1891
v. 19. 1892-1894
v. 20. 1895-1896
v. 21. 1897-1898
v. 22. 1899-1900

Because of the gradually increasing population of the diocese, subsequent volumes are expected to contain only about 12-18 months worth of records each.
