Orleans Parish Death Records

About this Service
This service only issues certified copies of microfilmed death certificates for deaths that occurred in Louisiana between 1911–1966. The database also contains older death records for some parishes, such as deaths that occurred in Jefferson parish before 1911, and deaths that occurred in Orleans parish as early as 1804. Microfilmed death certificates may not be available for many of these older records. For example, searching for a death that occurred in Orleans parish between 1804–1818 may produce results taken from the official Orleans parish death index, but individual death certificates for this period do not exist in the archives. We regret that we cannot issue certified copies of death certificates for deaths that occurred in Orleans parish during this period.

For more information about obtaining copies of Louisiana death certificates for deaths that occurred less than 50 years ago, visit the Vital Records Registry.
