The first place that I would look for a birth certificate is the Madison Parish, Clerk of Court. The office may be contacted at:

100 North Cedar Street
Post Office Box 1710
Tallulah, LA 71282

Hours: Monday - Friday
8:00 am - 4:30 pm

phone:(###) ###-####br />fax:(###) ###-####**@******.***

Or, if that doesn’t work, try this website:

Finally, you can check the birth records at local hospitals in Tallulah. Here is one site to do that:

http://www.publicrecordsdir.com/birth-records/Tallulah-LA/archives.html

I hope this helps.

Please go ahead and rate me. If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, please ask! There is no additional fee.
