Whether searching for a loved one, doing genealogy research, looking into local history, or shoring up family records, obituaries are invaluable resources to use. Obituaries provide windows into the lives of real people, and many times add context to family narratives. As a service to patrons doing genealogical research, Calcasieu Parish Public Library has compiled and maintains an obituary index.
