French SIG #France Re: Census Records #france


The oldest censuses kept in France date of the end of the 18th Century.
Generally, nominative censuses have been done with regularity since 1836
every 5 years, excepted during the wars (for instance, the census of 1871
has been done in 1872).
They are kept in the "Archives Départementales" and often available on
