A Successful Search in Alsace

This television clip comes from 2002 and was posted on YouTube. It is from a French television presentation, "La Généalogie" and tells of an American tracing his ancestors in Alsace. It is particularly useful in that it shows his visits to local and Departmental Archives, where he looks up actes de naissances on microfilm and has the plans cadastrales explained to him by an archivist. It is in both French and English.
