Re: 1910 LA Census Question

In Reply to: 1910 LA Census Question by Roger E Maxey of 1686

In Louisiana, the state is divided into parishes instead of counties, which is the only state to do so. The parishes are subdivided up into wards and if the population is large enough, the wards are divided up into precincts. So the people you are researching resided in ward 7 of Caddo Parish. I hope this answers your question.
