I'm planning a trip to De Soto Parish, Louisiana but have never been there. I would like to be prepared as much ahead of time to make my trip the most efficient. What is available for a family researcher in the parish courthouse? I've always heard of people being able to go to the courthouse and find records on probate records, wills, etc. but don't know what to expect at that courthouse. Has anyone done research there and if not where would I for people who born and lived there? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
