 If you haven't already checked the records, the parish and civil records for Marseille (?))  are online.  Marseille is quite a big town so a lot to sort through . I would therefore start with the Decennial tables.for births (naissance) for surnames beginning with A for the time period in which you think he was born. This will give you a date to then look for in  the civil and parish registers.

Here is the site http://doris.archives13.fr/dorisuec/jsp/system/win_main.jsp

If you aren't sure about French records then this might help.
