Overview

The marriage and death announcements presented here were extracted from microfilm copies of The Caucasian, a tri-weekly newspaper published at Shreveport, Louisiana. These references are a valuable resource for both white and African American genealogists seeking ancestors who lived in Caddo Parish from 1903 to 1913. Although newspaper articles of marriages and deaths do not indicate race, it seems likely that the subjects of these articles were white; the articles having been published during Segregation. However, the newspaper also included statistics on marriages and deaths reported by the Board of Health, and these records identify individuals as white, colored, or black. Marriages and deaths from The Caucasian are presented here in chronological order. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
