French Civil Records
An access in only one click to civil records of Metropolitan France, Overseas Territories and Old French Colonies. It contains civil records by departments and by communes. The access by department is by department number, by alphabetical order, or by region, or through a very visible huge map, clicking in every department. The access to communes includes a detail with the address and phone and e-mail of every commune conserving its own civil records, and a list apart of all the communes on line. It also has an access to French Overseas records (when available): Guadeloupe, Saint Pierre et Miquelon, Martinique, Guyane, Reunion, etc. Also includes a conversion of dates of French Republican Calendar to our conventional calendar, and a report about how to preserve old documents, papers and photographs, and their illnesses. It's actually considered in France one of the best resources for French records research. The site has a version in English, other one in French and other in Spanish.
