Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1680 to 1789.

The collection consists of a card index to all "B" surnames extracted from the 38 parishes of Rouen, France. Families are linked together on genealogical forms. In most cases, names are filed by "sound" rather than strictly alphabetical. Use of images of this index is strictly limited to personal research only and is not intended to be used for profit. For permission contact: Mr. Jean-Pierre Bardet, Professeur Emérite Université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV), 1, rue Victor-Cousin, 75005, Paris.

Publication of French records is authorized by the French commission for Informatics and Liberties (CNIL). FamilySearch has requested approval from this entity to publish French records.

As soon as permission has been granted by the CNIL, publication of French records will become available on FamilySearch.
