Family History Today: Discovering Your Jewish Ancestors in France
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
The French Revolution created a rupture in all aspects of life in France, including its recordkeeping practices. In this talk, Anne Morddel, a certified genealogist specializing in French genealogy, will explain how you can discover your Jewish ancestors in France in both pre-Revolutionary legal and religious records and post-Revolutionary civil records. Providing additional context, Ms. Mordell will outline the history of Jewish settlement in France from the Jewish expulsion of 1394 to the expansion of France’s boundaries during the Revolution, focusing on the Southwest, Alsace-Lorraine, and the communities around Avignon.
