Wikisource Access Genealogy: A Free Genealogy Resource Genealogy Guys 1U - Fichier des tables des décès Dite des absences et successions 1791/1792 à 1859 Fichier réalisé à partir des registres DQ8 déposés aux Archives de Paris Source : Archives de Paris Contenu Les fonds de l’enregistrement comprennent entre autres les tables de décès dites DQ8 et les registres des absences et successions, à savoir 869 registres pour les années 1791-1792 à 1859.

Sachant que huit familles sur dix sont dites « ne possédant rien », « dans la misère », « dans l’indigence », il n’y a pas de succession et donc pas de recherche à faire dans la série DQ7 ; sauf pour les familles restantes qui capitalisent l’ensemble de tous les biens. Ce fichier est celui qui présente le plus large éventail des métiers car, avec ces dizaines de milliers de données, il recense non seulement les ébénistes et les menuisiers – l’index en compte actuellement une centaine - mais aussi toutes les professions qui se rattachent à ces métiers.

Google Genealogy Style Google is the search engine of choice for most genealogists I know, due to its ability to return relevant search results for genealogy and surname queries and its huge index. Google is much more than just a tool for finding Web sites, however, and most people surfing for information on their ancestors barely scratch the surface of its full potential. If you know what you are doing, you can use Google to search within Web sites, locate photos of your ancestors, bring back dead sites, and track down missing relatives. Learn how to Google as you've never Googled before. Begin with the Basics - Google automatically assumes an implied AND between each of your search terms. - Google is case insensitive, with the exception of the search operators AND and OR. - Google will return results that contain all of your search terms, but will give higher priority to the earlier terms in your query. Search With a Focus - Use a (-) before words that you want to be excluded from the search.

Registres de catholicité de plus de 100 ans aux Archives de Paris Les Archives de Paris détiennent un exemplaire des registres des actes de baptême et de mariage de plus de 100 ans (antérieur à 1909), célébrés dans les paroisses parisiennes de 1791 à 1909.
