The Genealogical Publishing Company of Baltimore has a huge selection of books of interest to researchers, and there are two Louisiana-related books that are still available. In case you need these particular items, here are brief notes about them.
The Settlement of the German Coast of Louisiana and the Creoles of German Descent by J. Hanno Deiler is the first one. Deiler devotes the preliminary sections of this work to the early German families and their settlements in Louisiana. Nearly one-half of the book lists, along with genealogical notices, the names of Germans on both banks of the Mississippi above New Orleans, and a roster of additional German names. These are based on the census of 1724. Not included on this census are names of Germans from Maryland and Creoles of German descent. This one is priced at $24.50 postpaid.

The other Louisiana book is Louisiana Soldiers in the War of 1812, compiled by Marion John Bennett Pierson. This is a complete index to the service records of 12,500 Louisiana soldiers, compiled from the card files in the office of the Adjutant General in Washington, D.C. Arranged alphabetically, the index gives each soldierís full name, rank, and company (or companies) of service. This is also a softcover book and is priced at $27.50, postpaid.

They also have one CD, but you need to make sure you have the right equipment and programs before buying this one. Itís called Early Louisiana Settlers, 1600s-1800s and contains the images of 11 books published by this company. It deals with the early census records, family histories, military records, marriage records, immigration records, and much more. Most of the data is otherwise inaccessible and covers a period of time when Louisiana was under French and later Spanish control. About 60,000 settlers are identified. The price is $33.99 postpaid.

These can be ordered directly from the publisher.
