ANNOUNCING THE SIXTH

ST. TAMMANY GENEALOGICAL
SOCIETY WEBINAR –

JULY 17, 2021 – ONLINE!


Genealogy and Civil Law

with Forrest Hansen


Many of the records used by family historians are records whose existence and interpretation are based on the prevailing laws at the time that the records were created.  Most legal references in genealogical research of United States records refer to common law.  However, ancestral research in Louisiana records is governed by

civil law.  Historic records from other parts of

the United States governed by France and Spain during their colonial periods are also rooted in the principles of civil law. 

Family history researchers should understand basic law principles and legal records routinely consulted in genealogical research.  This presentation will explore the basic principles of civil law and explain civil law notarial records, which are among the most valuable genealogical resources available.

The presenter, Forrest Hansen, is an attorney with expertise in civil law.  He has practiced law in France and currently teaches law at the Université of Paris.  Forrest has previously taught at the American University Washington College of Law.  He is a native of Louisiana and is fluent in French.
