Calling Baton Rouge

I ordered three death certificates today. The first two were for my great-great grandparents Menou and Bourgaux.

The third record was for another great-great grandmother, Eliza Eldridge. She is best known as the poor wife at home in this pesky homicide incident where her husband was murdered for making eyes (among other things) with the neighbor's wife. Ahhhh, family.

This is my first foray into Louisiana records requests. Because these death certificates are over 50 years old, I can request them from the Louisiana State Archives for 5 bucks each. Not bad.

So we'll see how it goes. I don't expect any surprises from these records. Just getting my facts straight.
