This database contains death extracts from the historic department of Seine, France from 1860-1902. The extracts were compiled from newspaper and other death notices by ARFIDO S.A., a French genealogical and heir research association.
The historic department of Seine encompassed Paris and vicinity. Today it is divided into the departments of Paris, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, and Val-de-Marne. The extracts have been arranged into five series by ARFIDO. Series 12 covers the city of Paris from 1893-1902. Series 15-18 cover the banlieue, or outskirts or suburbs, of Paris from 1860-1902. This represents all the former municipalities of Seine, except for Paris.
Information listed on these extracts includes:
- Name of deceased
- Death date
- Death place
Extracts in Series 12 also include the deceased’s age at time of death.
