French Archives

There were important communities in Bordeaux, Bayonne and various villages in south-west France but, for most of the period that interests us, these communities lived as public Catholics. Information on them can be found in relevant regional archives and Church records.

I believe the relevant archives are:

Archives départementales de la Gironde (includes Bordeaux)
Archives des Basses-Pyrénées

Archives municipales et départementales – Ville de Bayonne

 

The Gironde archives cover Bordeaux.
