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.
