Roots of Faith:

Using Catholic Church Records in Genealogy

The St. Tammany Genealogical Society will host a presentation  entitled Roots of Faith: Using Catholic Church Records in Genealogy with Ann Boltin, from the Diocese of Baton Rouge Archives.

PLACE:  Causeway Branch of the St. Tammany

Parish Public Library

3457 U. S. Highway 190 in Mandeville, LA - (985) 626-9779
(in the former K-Mart parking lot, near the UPS store)
DATE AND TIME: Saturday, March 28, 2020

9:30 a.m. to 11:30a.m.

The Society’s Meet-and-Greet will precede the presentation and will begin at 9:30 a.m., during which light refreshments will be served.  The presentation will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end before 12 noon.  It is free and open to the public.  Seating is limited to adults and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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 Archivist/Records Manager for the Diocese of Baton Rouge, a position she has held since 2007.  In addition to her duties in archives and 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..
