One Reply to “Family History in Jersey: the French connection”

  1. Just a couple of extra pointers discovered since I wrote this:

    – not all communes put their tables decennales in the same volume as the actual records – some keep them separately.
    – although the records are available, not all of them are free. The archive for the Calvados departement puts its census information and etat civil records behind a pay wall (albeit you can get a 2-day access into them for the princely sum of 2 euros). I hope to do some research into which other archives charge soon.
