ANNOUNCING THE FOURTH

ST. TAMMANY GENEALOGICAL
SOCIETY WEBINAR –

JANUARY 23, 2021 – ONLINE!


The Roots of Faith:

Using Catholic Church Records in Genealogy
with Ann Boltin


The speaker Ann Boltin will explore the unique history of the Catholic Church in Southeast Louisiana.  Beginning with the settlement of the area by explorers in the 17th century, Ann describes the progress of the people, the parishes, and the faith from early statehood through the 21st century.  Ann will also describe how the Church’s record-keeping requirements produced a treasure trove for genealogists who are researching their Louisiana ancestors.  Although her main focus will be the resources of the Baton Rouge Diocese, the speaker will provide an overview of the resources available in each of the other six Louisiana Dioceses.

Mrs. Ann T. Boltin is the chancellor of the Diocese of Baton Rouge.  In addition to being in charge of all sacramental and other diocesan records, Ann produces a history series for CatholicLife television, the diocesan network.  Ann has been a member of the Academy of Certified Archivists since 2005.  She is an active member of the Society of American Archivists (SAA), the Society of Southwest Archivists (SSA), the Association of Record Managers and Administrators (ARMA), and the Association of Catholic Diocesan Archivists (ACDA) where she served as President from 2014-2017.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and a Master of Library and Information Science, both from L.S.U. in Baton Rouge.
