MyHeritage Adds French Record Collection: Nord Civil Marriage Records, 1792–1937

We're delighted to let you know that MyHeritage has released a fantastic French record collection — France, Nord Civil Marriages, 1792-1937 which includes 5.4 million civil records of marriages (1792-1937) for the French department of Nord that were collected by government authorities after the French Republic was proclaimed in 1792. The collection contains a detailed searchable index that details you won’t find on other websites. 

The collection is live in MyHeritage SuperSearch™ at:

In this collection, you’ll find rich details about the bride, groom, and their families, including the names of the bride and groom, their birth dates, birthplaces, marriage date and location, and the names of the bride’s and groom’s parents — including their mothers’ maiden surnames. Additional information about the death of one or more of the parents, along with witness names and details — often with recorded relationships to the bride and groom — can also be found.


The index that we created for this collection is unique in that it lists information that isn’t available on any other website, such as the estimated birth years of the bride and groom, and the names of their parents.

The collection on MyHeritage also includes beautiful scanned images of every record in a higher resolution than can be seen on some other sources.

The collection is available for searching on SuperSearch™, and users will receive Record Matches from this collection, revealing new information about their ancestors who appear in the records.

The collections provide robust coverage of during a span of 145 years making them a treasure trove of valuable family history information. They are sure to provide insight for anyone with roots in that region.

Where would I find a map, that would show me where the French department of Nord, is located? I'm not sure if that would be the area where my relatives came from.

Too bad this is a paid site. I have manually searched the record books on the French site using the ten year indexes. This would be so helpful. The French marriage records hold a wealth of information compared to those of other countries. I found my great-grandparents marriage record with the help of a native speaker and it opened up that side of the family history for the first time.


Nord Department is at the North-Eastern border of France with Belgium. Just use Google and search for maps of France or even just the Department of Nord, France..
