Does anyone have access to the Diocese of Baton Rouge Catholic Church Records [closed]

+2 votes
I have 8 children of someone that I can not find a single source on. Most of my other sources were given to me by someone else and they all came from THE Diocese of Baton Rouge Catholic Church Records. I am hoping one of the Louisiana project members may have access to them or access of other records. The following are the parents who I have records on: Plaisance-169 Antonio Plaisance and Albarado-66 Maria Antonia Albarado Plaisance

Need sources for these Children: Plaisance-177 Adorestine Felicite Plaisance, Plaisance-171 Antoine Benoit Plaisance, Plaisance-173 Constance Innocence Plaisance, Plaisance-176 Florin Augustine Plaisance, Plaisance-175 Isidore Joseph Plaisance, Plaisance-170 Marie Eleonore Plaisance, Plaisance-172 Marie Clotaire Plaisance and Plaisance-174 Victor Eloi Plaisance.

Any help will be appreciated. They have been sitting in my unsourced profile for a while.

Jackie, If you need to check a book that you're missing, I can fill in the gap.
I believe I have them all for this family (up to volume 22)--thanks Joyce.
Thank you so much for not only looking them up, but putting everything on the profiles. You are so greatly appreciated. I had searched and searched for records of these guys with no luck and I just knew if everyone else was in those books they had to be too.
You're welcome. It was easier to put them on the profiles than to create a readable email or document. I did find that 2 children don't have profiles but I found records. The first one I did, I went by the name and then found that that person died as an infant. The one you really want is his brother who went on to marry. I put that information on Emmanuel's profile so you can easily create another profile. The other son, I put his birth record on his father's profile. Incidentally, these are Canary Islanders and we have a category for them--a very interesting group of people who eventually settled around Valenzuela, St. Bernard Parish. Their name was really Placencia but it quickly became Plaisance.
I don't know if my email to you went through it was a reply to my notification of this message you left on here. This is what I posted.

Actually Valenzuela according to my understanding is now Donaldsonville, which is in Ascension Parish. This is about 10 miles down the road from me. I could be totally wrong. This is just what is listed on quite a few records i have. The Albarado/Giroir and Musco/Zito families are my Husbands people. His Musco/Zito family came from Abruzzo, Italy/Sicily in the late 1800's The Musco family are knownot for the St. Amico Chapel in Aben which is a part of Donaldsonville. You really should look it up. It was a pretty big deal. In the early years thousands of people used to come and celebrate St. Amico. It's dwindled down now to just family. I am currently working on a family book for this family and once I finish them I am thinking of doing one on the Albarado/Giroir family as well.


Yes, the Albarado's were a part of the migration of settlers from the Canary Islands. I will have to check out that sub project. The Giroir's or Girouard's of course you are a part of lol you and my hubby are probably cousins. His mom was a Giroir.

I did see the one Sibling you added on his brother Emanuele page. I haven't added him because there may be some discrepancy with him. The record shows he was born only a few months after his brother (Emmanuelle in August 1927 and Victor in December 1927. So either dates were recorded wrong and they were either twins or a different year al together or the parents are incorrect to one or the other. Of cource, there could have always been parents with the same name, I guess.

I didn't see the one on the father's profile. I guess I missed that. I will go and look at him and get him added.

Once again, I am so great full for your help. I have been searching for Sources for a few years. Even before I had added them on wikitree. So this was such a big help. My husband was laid off so I haven't been able to keep any of my paid sites or order the archives for the Diocese. Hopefully I will get them on day as I have a bit more info on the family I would like to research.

Thank you for this link. I tried this but the pdf isn't the records. It's the order forms to order the books. Not all in Stock and out of my price range right now. I wish these records were online.
FYI: DOBR Volumes 4, 8, 9, 10, & 12 and Baptisms 1901-1905 are available on Kindle through for $10 last time I looked. They are searchable and the copy/paste works well, carries the citation with it. DOBR isn't going to reissue their volumes and is instead digitizing them for sale on
