By Jacques Gagné

The Archives nationales de France is one of the oldest and largest in Continental Europe.

This archives can be reached on the internet at various web sites. I have listed below those that might be a match for French Canadian and Acadian searches.

• Archives nationales de France – Main site

Archives de France – Second main site

• Archives de France – Archives en ligne – Online Archives

• Archives nationales d’outre-mer – Overseas Archives including Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon

Archives nationales de France-Affaires et biens des Protestants -Instruments de recherche généraux – Protestant families, who they were, where they lived, what they owned and what was taken away from them.

• Archives nationales de France –Archives des Consistoires –Familles protestantes de France

Serie TT-230-2768 – Archives des Consistoires

Serie TT.pdf – Familles protestants de France

• This web site is basically derived from the writing of Bernard Gildas, a researcher who spent a lifetime researching Protestant families in various régions of France from the 17th century onward.
