In 2016, these files were imported into our database in order to facilitate the research and organisation of the maritime records of your ancestors.

maritime registrations for the districts of Philippeville,
Algiers and Oran. Most of these records are stored in the Archives Maritimes de Toulon, but others were tracked down in the archives of the Ministry of Fisheries in Brittany, after several years of research.
