Rich pickings today, Dear Readers, with many choosing for the letter H to discuss something concerning hospitals. Quite a few explain resources to help with your French genealogical research.
- Carole Croze writes about using the hospital registers of the Hôtel Dieu of Lyon, found in the Municipal Archives of Lyon.
- Sur nos traces has a long a beautifully illustrated article on the very important Hôpital Rothschild in Paris, the archives of which we have found to be very useful in Parisian Jewish research.
- GénéaBreizh makes the case, as we often have done, for you knowing your history, Dear Readers, giving a pithy but powerful set of examples showing why.
- Sur la piste de mes ayeuls, under the guise of "H for Hispaniola", writes about Saint Domingue, giving quite a lot of history but also discussing the research usefulness of the online passports from Bordeaux, which we discussed here.
- Antequam... la généalogie! explains the use of the hypothèque archives, which we discussed here.
- De Branches en branches gives a thorough example of how to use the online Legion of Honour files, which we explained in English here.
- Archivistoires has an excellent presentation of the archival Series H in Municipal Archives, the series covering all things military.
Municipal Archives are a valuable and under-used resource for genealogists; it is nice to see them discussed in two posts on the same day.
