MoreMarriage registers in the civil parish (county) of Natchitoches do not begin until 1855. Civil marriages did occur before then, but registrations (when made) were entered randomly amid deeds and notarial acts. Licenses and bonds were required, but few have survived. Protestant church records are equally rare. By far the largest body of surviving marriage records for the civil parish of Natchitoches are the registers of St. François Catholic Church (present Immaculate Conception) in the town of Natchitoches, a collection that includes a number of Protestants and migrants from elsewhere in the U.S. Church marriage acts prior to 1818 have been published in earlier volumes of the Cane River Creole series. The present volume completes the publication of those marriages through 1850.
