Hi Marianne,

Unfortunately, from what I've gathered during many inquiries, the records were probably thrown away. I contacted the funeral home that took over for Thomas Funeral Home and they said the records were gone when they took over.

If anyone in Tangipahoa Parish has those old records sitting around, WE sure wish they'd turn them over to a genealogy department of a library.

Hello,
I hope you get this message it has been so long ago. The Thomas Funeral Home ledger books are at the library at Southeastern La. University (SLU) in Hammond, La. I have searched through them my self for burial records. I am still looking for the Poole Funeral Home books from the Hammond location.

Kim,

I saw your post while looking for Hammond obituaries from 1985. Thank you for the information about the location of the Thomas Funeral Home ledgers. Maybe when I get home next I can view the ledgers.

What exactly is included in the ledgers? I am looking for information on the following surnames: Misuraca, Lamonte, Piazza and Graziano.

So sorry for the delayed response. I haven't been on ancestry for some time.
The ledger books from what I recall give of course the deceased name, date of death, where they are buried and basically who paid the funeral bill.

Hope that is of some help.

Kim,

Thank you for your research and your message.

I'll plan a trip home after I retire the end of this month, August 2012.

Hi Rosemary,

Just wondering if you indeed got a chance to visit the SLU library for the
Thomas Funeral Home Records. If so, I hope it was some help to you.

Kim,

The information is helpful. I have not had an opportunity to get to Hammond to review. Don't know when I'll be home next, although it could be this year. My husband and I finally retired the end of August. Of course retirement is no indication that I'll have less to do. :-)

Thank you for the follow-up.

Rosemary
