Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: French burial 1789
« on: Friday 15 April 22 23:24 BST (UK)  »
I did wonder if "dr" could be an abbreviated form of "dernier" which would give "dernier son", so perhaps "after ..... sung to the last sound" but it's certainly not an expression I've ever come across before.  Hopefully someone knows better than me.  The missing word woud doubtless provide a clue if it were legible.

The father's surname looks like either DAIX or DAUX both of which seem to be present in the area.  The writer dots his Is but there seems to be an extra stroke.  I agree the mother's surname looks like ANDRE.  Her first name could be Ernelde - don't know if that exists, though it could be a variation on the feminine of Arnould which does seem to be present there.

Just some suggestions.

A note in the margin of Marie Thérèse's birth certificate says she was married  on 20 November 1916 in Amiens to Leonard Athol McKenzie.

Sorry but no time to look for the entry just now.

An online tree gives the date date of death of Catherine DELESTIENNE (sic) as 7 August 1701 at Ciply, Mons, Hainaut, Wallonie, Belgique, which may be worth following up.

Europe / Re: Where is this original French street plan?
« on: Thursday 16 December 21 13:02 GMT (UK)  »
In reply to a post on the relevant Généanet forum someone has said the street map can be consulted at the "archives municipales" in Montreuil-sur-mer:

https://www.montreuil.fr/culture/archives-municipales

and adds this reference which appears to be to a book rather than the actual map :

Sorry but no time to phone to check today, I'm afraid.

Europe / Re: Finding records in Paris
« on: Thursday 09 December 21 09:33 GMT (UK)  »
I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I think that at that time most apprenticeship contracts were drawn up by notaries and would therefore be among their records.  A quick search hasn't enabled me to find out whether they have been indexed specifically or not but I suspect the latter unfortunately.
