Good day everyone; I'm currently trying to follow some ancestor line in 19th century France, but I'm only finding reconstituted civil records that were lost during WWI. Those are useful, but far from complete, as they don't list the parent's names and place of origin for a wedding record, for example. They also only cover from 1835 to 1935, just enough so that people living at the time could get their birth and wedding records. I'm seeing this for the Ardennes dept., as well as some others. I understand that these reconstructed archives were based on existing church records, but I haven't been able to find those online. Does anyone know if the original church records still exist and if they are available somewhere?
