History of the registers:

St. Louis, earlier known as Grand Prairie, is the southern or upper part of French Prairie in Marion County, Oregon. The first St. Louis volume begins with the establishment of the parish in 1845. Earlier records for St. Louis residents are found in the St. Paul registers.

Gervais is in the southeast quarter of French Prairie. It was originally part of the St. Paul Parish, and records of early Gervais families are found in the St. Paul registers.

The village of Brooks is in the southeastern part of French Prairie between Gervais and Salem and west of Lake Labish. Brooks was first a part of St. Paul Parish and then of St. Louis. In 1872, it was part of Gervais. In 1886, it was made a parish in its own right.

Volume indexed:

Every name in the registers is indexed, making it easy to find baptisms, marriages, and burials. Witnesses to events (also indexed) are often related to the principals
