Immigrants

Pre-statehood settlers of Louisiana generally came from eastern Canada, France, Germany, the West Indies, Spain, and Africa.[1] During the Revolutionary War many other immigrants arrived from the Atlantic states. When the territory was formed, large numbers of Americans from southern Ohio moved to this new acquisition.

New Orleans has always been Louisiana's major port.

Slaves were imported from Africa and the Caribbean. The French brought indentured servants and convicts into Louisiana.

The Irish were the largest immigrant group in Louisiana during the nineteenth century. They settled mainly during the 1840s and 1850s. Large numbers of Germans arrived in two waves, one just after 1810 and the second between 1840 and 1860. Small numbers of Scandinavians came in the 1820s. Some Mexicans settled here in the 1830s. Later immigrant groups included Italians, Hungarians, and Slavs.

Records and histories of ethnic groups in Louisiana, including Acadians (“Cajuns”), Blacks, Canary Islanders, Chinese, Creoles, French, Germans, and Yugoslavs, are listed in FamilySearch Catalog under: LOUISIANA-MINORITIES

Colonial Period

To learn more about the earliest European settlers, see:

Dr. Marianne S. Wokeck created a detailed list of "German Immigrant Voyages, 1683-1775" to Colonial America. Destinations include Louisiana (1721). She published the list in an Appendix to:

Spain recruited Canary Islanders to fight against the British in the American Revolution. See Spain in the American Revolution.  There’s a book in English about The Canary Islanders of Louisiana [2]that has names of recruits, their wives and children and some ages of the children.

Irish Immigrants

Louisiana received many Irish immigrants from early years of settlement and especially throughout much of the 19th century. The influx of Irish escalated during the Irish Great Famine, from 1846-1851 as New Orleans served as a gateway to many who passed through using the Mississippi River to migrate to other states.

Passenger Lists

The major port of entry to Louisiana has been New Orleans.

A number of colonial immigrants came to Louisiana from the Canary Islands, which belonged to Spain, see:

Lists of some of the colonial passengers have been published and are at the Family History Library. The Family History Library and the National Archives also have microfilms of:

The National Archives also has:

FamilySearch is in the process of digitizing these collections:
