Online Departmental Archives

France is divided in 95 administrative divisions called departments. Each department has its own archives which is separate from the National Archives (Archives Nationales).

Read ’Postal Code and INSEE Code’ to know in which department your ancestors lived.

Some of these genealogical records have been digitized and made public online.

Here is the list of the Departmental Archives websites and what you can expect to find there:
