New online today! Baptismal registers for St. Louis Cathedral New Orleans for Free People of Color and slaves 1777-1801

The registers are divided into 5 year groups.  Two links are provided for each year group, 
    • the first link being to an index of sorts (either chronological or alpha-chronological by the first letter of the name), 
    • the second link being the actual images of the registers.  

The registers for whites were maintained separately by the church and are NOT included on the website.  But whites are frequently mentioned in the entries either as being owners of various slaves, or as godparents to the infants being baptized.
