Paris Local Customs: 788 reviews and 839 photos
If you search your family roots in Paris you can go to the Paris Archives 18 Bd Serrurier (Metro : Porte des Lilas) 3184.108.40.206.23, fax : 3220.127.116.11.34.
Mon 1:30 - 5:20 PM; Tu - Fr 9:30 AM - 5:20 PM. (entrance on the photograph)
Ancient vital statistics restored after the Big Fire of May 1871, lot of files (i.e. : marriages during the Revolution), tax registration.
See also the Archives Nationales (see my travelogue 'Pl des Vosges) 11 rue des 4 Fils (métro : Rambuteau) : the lawyers archives. It is the main genealogical ressource for 16 and 17° centuries.
The number of communications are limited at the same time and per day. The staff do not speak English and has no time 'to spoil' with visitors. You have to do the search by yourself.
But it is totally free.
See on the travelogue of my Annapolis page, the story of the ancestor who was a follower of John Paul Jones, the first commander of the US Navy.
