I want to obtain a state marriage certificate for a relative in France.
I have an approximate year of marriage (1913) but I live in England.
Are there any genners out there in France who can tell me how I could go
about ordering such a document.
1- In France there are no centralized file for birth, marriage or death. If
you want to obtain a marriage certificate, you must know where it took
2- We have a 100 years law for these documents. That means that for a
marriage in 1913 you will not obtain (unless you are a rightful party) a
complete certificate, but only an abstract without the name of the parents.
To obtain it, you must write to the Town Hall of the place where the
wedding was celebrated.
If you give me privatly more informations, I may be able to help you more.
