Births of my 2x Greatgrandfather and his brother 1816 and 17

Unregistered user (Elena)
Hello, my 2x Ggrandfather Was born in 1817 in Cambrae, France. My 3xGgrandfather was in the British Army and worked in “ post office” before being medically discharged due to injury from shot during the Waterloo Battle. I have no idea how I would find birth certs for my 2xggrandfather and his brother, can someone please advise on where I would find the documents?

I assume you mean Cambrai in the département du Nord. Check out the archives départementales.

The index for 1817 begins at image 447. The actual acts are just before that.
