In celebration of American Archives Month, the Clerk of Civil District Court's Notarial Archives Research Center will be offering a series of free tours of its collection and seminars on researching New Orleans house histories. The tours are designed to introduce the public to three centuries of real estate records, numbering some 40 million pages.

They also will explore the value these records hold for researchers of topics such as property, architecture, genealogy and history. The research center is a public entity that maintains and provides access to land records and other contracts recorded in Orleans Parish.
