I received this information today from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage:
================================================We’re happy to announce that we’ve just published a huge treasure trove of 463 million historical records from France in 5 collections, which provide the most comprehensive coverage available for birth, marriage, and death records from France in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.
When MyHeritage acquired Filae — a leading genealogy service in France — two months ago, we promised that Filae’s valuable and exclusive content would soon become available on MyHeritage. This release constitutes a significant portion of the historical record content on Filae; many of the records are exclusive and not available on other commercial sites.
The collections in this release include:
- France, Church Baptisms and Civil Births with 154.4 million records.
- France, Church Marriages and Civil Marriages with 125.3 million records.
- France, Church Burials and Civil Deaths with 149.1 million records.
- 1872 France Census, taken in the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War and consisting of 16.4 million records from 67 French departments.
- 1906 France Census, consisting of 17.6 million records from 63 departments in France. Paris is not included in the 1872 and 1906 collections, as census taking in Paris only began in 1926.
This impressive compilation is just the beginning of our work with Filae to make historical records from France easily accessible to genealogists all over the world… so stay tuned!
I encourage you to check out the new collections and spread the word among your friends, family, and followers. Here’s a link to our blog post with more details on the collections.
Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and gave received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
