This category, under the Louisiana Families project, is for the pioneer first families of St. Charles, Parish, Louisiana.[1] The History of St Charles Parish lists those families, primarily German immigrants. The term "coast" refers to the Mississippi River, and the area these German pioneers settled along the river from New Orleans and north as land was available was known as the German Coast. There are also First and Second German Coasts and Acadian coasts.

côte des Allemands: Louisiana toponym: in 1790, the German Coast, called les Allemands, starting about 5 miles above New Orleans; "it stretched about fifty miles on both sides of the Mississippi river, an uninterrupted line of farms without a single village in the whole territory" (Vella 1997:73).[2]
