Thanks so much! I had missed the "most people lived near the French quarter" part the first time--sorry. That explains it I think. My particular family of research was there from sometime after 1820 until the mid or late (?) 1860s when they migrated to Northeast Alabama/Georgia border area. (Maybe the war was "hotter" in New Orleans at the time; though it sure heated up in the Atlanta area toward the last year of the war. The head of household had served in a Confederate Louisiana infantry division, but was discharged due to age.) We have a good public library where I live in South Georgia, and we also have two very good genealogy libraries within driving distance (day trip), so I've got food for thought and really do thank you so much! (Any link you think would help would be great too though.)
