Orleans Parish, LA Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce Records
Being that Orleans Parish is home to the city of New Orleans, the largest city in Louisiana and 46th large in the United States, there a number of methods to obtain vital records. However, the easiest method to obtain them is through the Louisiana Secretary of State website's Vital Records Index, which has death records for all of Louisiana for the past 50 years, birth records for Orleans Parish for the past 300 years, and marriage records for the past 200 years. Certified copies of all are available through the mail for $5 each, however certain age restrictions apply, for instance certified copies of marriage records from 1831 to 1869 are not available. For those records without copy availability, microfilm records are available for viewing instead through the Vital Records Index. The Index has a complete staff and is updated on a daily basis, ensuring that all records are as accurate as possible.
