921 million individuals added to Geneanet in 2022!

Posted by Jean-Yves on Oct 10, 2022

We are proud to announce that we have added 9 new collections to Geneanet, and we take this opportunity to make a quick overview of all the collections added to the site since the beginning of this year, including the collections provided by Ancestry which, as you know, has become Geneanet’s main partner!

The 9 new collections are the civil records from the Haute-Saône department (three collections), and the “Fonds Coutot” (six collections) for Paris and the former Seine department which were compiled by the Coutot genealogy company at the end of the 19th century to replace the archives burned during the Paris Commune in 1871.

Be sure to follow our updates since we regularly post information about new collections added to Geneanet.

Is data included for this region ‘ Hauts-de-France’ or will it be added?

Answer from Geneanet: In France, it’s best to identify the département or county; regions are a recent administrative grouping (the “Hauts-de-France” region dates from only 2016). Try to identify your ancestor’s département from this region: Aisne (02), Nord (59), Oise (60), Pas-de-Calais (62), Somme (80). Geneanet has data for all of these départements.

i HAVE BEEN TRYING TO identify and locate the birthplace(s) of MY LAMORELLE ANCESTOR(s) FROM FRANCE (Joseph born about 1760 and from “POITOU” on his US 1804 citizenship document migrated to USA ( maybe via West Indies ??) in late 1700’s???
I have done my DNA with Ancestry. I need professional guidance. I know about his life and heirs in the USA but know nothig about his roots in France. Can you help me?..
Sarah Jordan

Answer from Geneanet: Although we can’t assist with research, we can offer advice: upload your DNA to Geneanet (see this page) and try the hypothesis that your ancestor may have arrived via New Orleans. Don’t hesitate to ask for help in our forums!
