Diocese of Baton Rouge Volume 3 Lookup Request [closed]

+7 votes
I have most of the Diocese of Baton Rouge set EXCEPT volumes 3, 5, and 11 which are out of print. If anyone would be willing to look up information on a couple, I would greatly appreciate it.

The husband is Jean Baptiste Tassin (Tassin-68), son of Jean Baptiste Tassin (Tassin-1) and Petronila LaFrance (LaFrance-370)

The wife is Marguerite Rosalie Arceneaux - no profile. I believe she may be the daughter of Guillaume Arceneaux - no profile - and Marguerite Gaudet - also no profile - but I have not found any information linking this Marguerite Rosalie to the one listed in all of the baptismal records of the children of her and Jean Baptiste Tassin. If it is the same person, her baptismal record is on page 27 of volume 2 under Rosalie Marguerite Arceneaux.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

So good of Joyce to jump in to help. Thanks Joyce! FYI: Volumes 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 plus a few other publications can be purchased on Amazon.com for $10-Kindle. They are digital, searchable and can be copied, pasted. The citation comes with the paste automatically. I view them on my computer using the PC Kindle app which I find very handy for a lot of downloadable publications. To date, I have over 100 publications that I've downloaded to a .pdf and then imported into the PC Kindle app on my computer.

Best thing ever! I wish they would digitize all of the records because it's so much easier to find ALL of the instances of a person. Knowing when someone was at the baptism of a child or when they stood witness at someone's wedding has helped me many, many times when estimating dates. You can also find the records where the name was butchered due to various circumstances - illiteracy, different languages, deterioration of the records, etc. It also gives me a sense of the interactions between the families and I feel connected. That's what genealogy is all about: getting to know our ancestors as more than just a name in a book.

Thanks for the comment!
They will eventually all be digitized as they run out of their printed stock. New Orleans has digitized their very early originals but sometimes very hard to read. http://archives.arch-no.org/sfpc

From BRDA vol. 3, pg. 807:

TASSIN, Jean Baptiste, nat. St. Charles, 22 yrs. old (Jean Baptiste and Perrine LAFRANCE, decd.) m. 11 Oct. 1819 Marguerite Rosalie ARCENEAUX, 24 yrs. old (Guillaulme, decd. and Marguerite GAUDETE) wit: Leon Fabre; Pierre Cayet; Jean Wilson (SJA-2,177)

Hope that helps!

[Edited to insert his surname TASSIN, which I initially forgot to include from the surname group heading before the entry.]

Vol. 5 of BRDA has the birth of 4 more children, and the burial of another. Vol. 11 has the marriage of one of the children. I can also post them here if you need them.
Oh my gosh! Thank You! That would be amazing. I know it’s a lot of typing so if you want to just take snapshots of the pages and send them to my email, that would be perfect. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to get the information to me, however you choose to do so.
No problem! I've sent you an email about the additional entries.
