African-American Funeral Programs – The New Index

Several weeks ago, I published the index to the first fifty volumes of Ouachita Parish funeral home programs the Genealogy Department has collected over the years. When my colleague retired (she had started the work) I promised her that I would continue it as long as people brought me their programs to include. I’m currently working on volume 56. This is the index of volumes 51 – 55. Come by the library if you would like to see them!

NOTE: The entire master index through all current volumes can be found here:

There are tabs at the bottom for other parishes or states we have volumes for. Be sure and check all indexes!
