Re: Le Havre Passenger lists--new resource? #general


Richard Cooper
 

Many thanks to Rob Weisskirch for this link. It was useful to me for a
different reason.

from the entry on the UK 1901 Census I knew that my grandmother's sister
Jessie MILLET had been born in Le Havre, France in 1896, but hitherto I had
not known how to get her birth record.

I clicked on the link in Rob's posting and then clicked on the link to
'Inscription Maritime'.

Then I clicked on 'Rechercher' on the top menu, then >from the
drop-down menu chose 'Archives en ligne' and then clicked on 'L'Etat
Civil'.
Then I clicked 'Cliquez ici pour acceder a l'Etat Civil en ligne'.

This takes you to here:
http://recherche.archivesdepartementales76.net/?id=recherche_guidee_etat_civil

from the drop-down menu in the 'Commune' box I chose 'Havre (Le)',
then 1896, then 'Havre (Le) > Registres Etat Civil > Naissances'. This
takes you to a 604 page ledger containing 2,100 births.

Starting on page 534 there is an alphabetical surname index which will
enable you to find the record you need.

This may seem a bit of a niche resource, but not only was there a
good-sized Jewish community in Le Havre around 1900, but it may have
been a point of embarkation for emigrants >from Eastern Europe to Great
Britain, the British Empire and the Americas who for whatever reason
chose not to leave >from the German North Sea ports,

All the Best and Happy ancestor-spotting!
