Ascension Parish, Louisiana

Ascension Parish is located in the state of Louisiana. The parish was formed in 1807 and named after Ascension of Our Lord Church in Donaldsonville. Gonzales is the largest city in the parish, while Donaldsonville is the parish seat. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the parish has a population of approximately 107,215 people and a total area of 303 square miles, of which 13 square miles is water and 290 square miles is land, making it the fourth-smallest parish in Louisiana by total area. Ascension Parish borders the following parishes: East Baton Rouge Parish to the north, Livingston Parish to the northeast, St. John the Baptist Parish to the east, St. James Parish to the southeast, Assumption Parish to the southwest, and Iberville Parish to the west.

The Ascension Parish Clerk of Court is the official parish recorder. Records maintained by the office of the clerk date back to the year 1770, when Ascension Parish was known as the “Second Acadian Coast”. Until the turn of the century, most records in the clerk’s office were handwritten, many in French. To insure preservation of some of the county’s very early records, they are stored in a climate-controlled environment at State Archives. These records include Book of Mortgages from 1860-1880, Probate Records from 1843-1932 and Index to Civil Suits from 1816-1818. Since 1954, records have been microfilmed and others have been laminated.

Public records may be viewed by visiting the Ascension Parish Clerk of Court Website. However, the website does not have all the records, including marriage records from 1770 to 1829 and Patent records dating back to 1807. Such records can only be viewed in person at the clerk’s office, Monday through Friday during office hours.
