Locating a Paris divorce record from 1889 #france #records

Michael Traynor

Good morning!

A relative was married in Odessa in 1885, then divorced in Paris, France, in 1889.  The divorce was recorded in the metrical books back in Odessa, with a note indicating that a messenger had brought the news from Paris.

Having marginal knowledge of French records and very little idea of how Jewish divorces worked across international lines in the 1880s, I could use a little help: would the divorce have been recorded in Paris records as well?  If so, how would I request or obtain that record?  I'm curious to see if it has any additional details that could prove helpful.

Many thanks for the guidance!
