Old Louisiana Plantations and Family Trees, Volume 1
Herman de Bachelle Seebold
This set of books is the definitive guide to the important plantation homes of Louisiana, along with the socially prominent families who owned them. These books are filled with rare photos of historically significant town homes, plantations and outbuildings that are no longer extant and provide detailed genealogical and anecdotal information on a genteel society and lavish lifestyle that is now only a memory. These families and plantations cover the entire state from: Ascension, Assumption, East & West Baton Rouge, East & West Feliciana, Iberville, Jefferson, Madison, Natchitoches, New Orleans, Pointe Coupee, Rapides, St. Charles, St. James, St. John, St. Martins, St. Mary, Terrebonne, and Washington Parishes.
