Optants of Alsace-Lorraine

In 1871, the German Empire annexed the French Alsace and Moselle part of Lorraine. The Treaty of Frankfurt gave residents of Alsace-Lorraine the choice between keeping their French nationality and emigrating, or remaining in the region and becoming German citizens. The 'Optants of Alsace-Lorraine' records have been digitized and they are available on Geneanet. You can help index them!
