RE:
Open in St. Bernard Parish/20 Year Search

Dear Associates:

The St Bernard Parish Clerks Office is now open with 20 years worth of indexes and books. The books for prior years were not destroyed; they are drying out and will not be back until January or February.

A great number of transactions can be processed within this shortened search period. Please see Bulletin Number MU000018 and MU000035 for search requirements.

It looks like we are back in business in St. Bernard Parish. Please call us on a case by case basis for approval on any transactions which do not meet the guidelines of the above mentioned bulletins.
