• Registres paroissiaux – La numérisation en 2013 porte sur les registres paroissiaux de la période de temps avant 1832, précisément de l’origine à 1792 – Cette numérisation est réalisée d’après les registres originaux empruntés des Archives de communes du département, canton par canton – Parish Registers – Presently not on line is the period from the 6th century to 1792 – The various acts of baptisms, marriages, deaths have perished in a major fire at said archives some years back. Presently, this archives have borrowed orginal documents from the local and regional archives, the latter known as Archives communales, and these are the various acts of the Parish Registers which will be offered in a digitized format from the Fall of 2013 and onward.
