St. Martin Parish Public Library

The St. Martin Public Library is located at 201 Porter Street, in St. Martinville Louisiana.  This is a very nice little public library located a short distance from town.  There is a separate room just for genealogy related materials.  I had a few items on my Research Log that I found here.  There is a complete set of Father Hebert's Southwest Louisiana Records and each of the Baton Rouge Diocese Indexes.  Primarily this spot is all about Louisiana, and even though it is a smaller collection I was impressed with it as a whole.  I made a note this would be a great place to just use the Hebert and Baton Rouge Indexes.  Another researcher told me about this library and mentioned there was a file cabinet full of drop folders by surnames.  Found it, and reviewed everything concerning my Theriot name.  There is a part-time genealogist who volunteers here, though I missed her on my visit.  Parking was no problem.
