French Marriage Certificate needed - Help! #general


robert.gleek <robert.gleek@...>
 

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.
Has anyone in the USA successfully done this in France?
Or is someone in France able to do this on my behalf? - Perhaps I can
do a look-up for them in London?
Please email me privately if you have any advice and I will pass on the
details.
Many Thanks,
Daniel Gleek

The French Civil Birth and Marriage Certificates are freely available only
if they date of at least 100 years. You can obtain a full copy of a
Marriage Certificate of 1913 only if you are a descendant (or an
ascendant) of the persons concerned. In such a case, you have to give a
proof of your family link.

In the other cases, you can just obtain an extract of the certificate
without mention of the parents'names.

Sincerely,
Laurence Abensur-Hazan (Mrs)

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
place.
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.
