The Roman Catholic church dominated Louisiana until the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. In fact, it was the only church in Louisiana until this time. The Catholic churches throughout the state kept registers of christenings, marriages, and burials and were the recorders of Louisiana's early vital records.
