The latest publication of the St. Helena Historical Association, Inc. is St. Helena Remembers Her World War I Veterans. This all came about when Inez Tate located a book pertaining to the World War I veterans of St. Helena Parish in the Clerk of Court's office. It was a summary of the discharged, listed three on each page and in alphabetical order.

A contact made with the Department of Veterans Affairs in Baton Rouge produced little information. The officer was familiar with the book and stated that until 1987, these books were in all parishes in Louisiana. At that time, they were turned over to the Louisiana State Archives for safekeeping. He did not know the origin of the books, and the Louisiana State Archives had no information regarding the origin of them either.

Some veterans took their discharge papers to the Clerk of Court, and copies were made and retained there. A review of the St. Helena Cemetery reveals there were World War I veterans buried in the various cemeteries who were not included in the book of discharges nor was a copy of their discharge filed in the Clerk of Court's office.

The book includes interesting information on the veterans' service time.

Noted in this publication are the addresses of the little post offices no longer in existence. Also included are interesting stories and data on the veterans.

The price of this soft-cover book is $18.00, postpaid.

 USGenWeb's Official Policy


USGenWeb will not tolerate any copyright violations. Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple. Information given will be minimal, for example if it is a cemetery lookup, the information will be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone. Please do not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed; the volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests.

Our lookups will extend to searching the book to determine if the book would be helpful to you in your research. Should the book prove useful, we can provide the authors address and ordering information.
