This Collection will include records from 1772 to 1910.<br>
  
 
In earlier years, separate registers were maintained for baptisms, marriages, and burials. However, towards the end of the 17 century the entries were generally intermingled. Entries were made in chronological order, with the records being written in Latin. Confirmations were not consistently recorded. Toward the latter half of the 19th century, pre-printed forms began to be used with the date and names written in by the officiating priest.

In 1667, the Code Louis required that two copies of the registers be kept, with one deposited at the bailliage. Most parishes covered a single town or village.

Title in the Language of the Records

France, Quimper et Léon diocèse, registres des paroisses catholiques

Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1772 to 1910.

In earlier years, separate registers were maintained for baptisms, marriages, and burials. However, towards the end of the 17 century the entries were generally intermingled. Entries were made in chronological order, with the records being written in Latin. Confirmations were not consistently recorded. Toward the latter half of the 19th century, pre-printed forms began to be used with the date and names written in by the officiating priest.

In 1539, François I issued the edict of Villers-Cotterêts, which required the Catholic Church to record baptisms. The Pope mandated that records be kept in 1563. In 1579 the edict of Blois required the church in France to register marriages and burials. In 1667, the Code Louis required that two copies of the registers be kept, with one deposited at the bailliage. Most parishes covered a single town or village. Large cities normally had multiple parishes.

French Catholic parish registers were created to record the church’s sacraments of baptism, marriage, and burial.

French Catholic parish registers are extremely reliable sources for French family history.

Further revisions to the collection will follow as other parishes are published in future.

How to Use the Records

Parish registers are the best source for identifying individuals, parents, and spouses in France before 1792. Civil registration began in September 1792, and after this date, civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths is equally important. The information recorded in the parish registers confirms the information found in the civil registers.

Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.

To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links: ⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page ⇒Select the "Département" category ⇒Select the "Commune" category ⇒Select the "Paroisse" category ⇒Select the "Type de registre et l'année" category which takes you to the images.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
