LI Guy :

Are they pronounced the same? Man have I been so confused. I am planning my summer trip to France next year. I wanted to go to Aveyron but go confused becuase Avignon is not that far away. I now know that the Aveyron region is what I want to tour however is it possible to tour Provance and Aveyron within 9 days?

Tiramisu :
"Aveyron is a department in middle/south of France and the main town is Rodez Avignon is town, where you can see each year a theater festival in july. It's a beautiful town. It's the main town of the department Vaucluse. The prononciation is a little bit different because in french, you pronounce "gn" as "ni", so pronounce Avignon as "Avinion""
abuela Nany :
"Avignon (phonetically Ah-vee-nyo) is the main city in the departement de la Vaucluse, in the region known as Provence. A beautiful little city to visit, especially in summer. l'Aveyron (phonetically: Ah-vay-rohn) is a Dèpartement in itself, the main city being Rodez.. It is a lovely area to visit. The famous Bridge in Millau is in that region. In nine days you should be able to do Aveyron and a few more things. For example Albi to visit the museum in the town where Toulose Lautrec was born, or a bit further southwest to visit Toulouse itself, or the walled city of Carcassonne.. You should have many wonderful places to discover and enjoy! Provence is further east... Aix-en-Provence is a lovely city, Arles, Brignoles, Dignes-les-Bains, Carpentras and many others, I doubt you'd have time in just nine days to visit both Aveyron and Provence... At least not completely.. Do as many as you can comfortably, and have another go on a second trip!"

Major Ace Hole :

The family arrived on September 29, 1903. I have exhausted all census records, military records, and U.S. vital records on this family and am ready to move on to resources in France. I have tried posting on message boards on Rootsweb and genforum. I tried to find resources on Decazeville in the Family History Library Catalog on familysearch.org, but didn't find anything. I am fresh out of ideas. Are there any French sites that can help? I don't speak French so there is a language barrier to overcome for me. Thank you for your help. P.S. Long detailed answers are welcome. Thanks I apologize for coming on a little strong in my previous question. I really do appreciate all attempts to help. I'm not one to bite off the head of someone trying to help. Thank you for all help.

GenevievesMom :
"Genealogy research in France is going to be a learning experience for you. Ancestry.com, Rootsweb and FamilySearch.org will NOT be valuable to you. The French have not organized their resources the way most western countries have. The first place to start is a site called GeneaNet. They have both French and English language interfaces, but both access the same resources. It's different than what you're used to, but it does a great job of introducing you to researchers in France who have researched the same families. The next thing to understand is that there is no national set of resources like we would have at NARA. Instead, the resources are kept in the departements and provincial archives. The hard part is that they not only changed the recordkeeping methods during the French Revolution, but they also changed the entire calendar. There are several resources for the French Republican Calendar, but Wikipedia is good as any. When you get down to the early 1800s you'll need to familiarize yourself with it. Take a peek...it's mind blowing that they decided to recreate the number of days in a week, number of weeks in a month and number of months in a year...let alone the day when the year began. DeCazeville isn't as important to you as Aveyron and Midi-Pyrenees are. Focus on finding records for those two entities. You'll also look for their visas to travel from Aveyron to the port city (Marseilles or LeHavre I'm guessing?) If it was LeHavre, the odds are there are more records there for you to find, especially from 1903. Marseilles is a little more "abstract" in their recordkeeping. You'll be looking for the passport visas allowing them to board the ship and leave the country. In the south, and particularly Midi-Pyrenees, you won't have much destruction of records from either WW. So look for wills, military service records, baptismal certificates, civil marriage registers, religious marriage registers, civil death records, census records, etc. That part will usually be accessible through LDS microfilms. I hope it gives you a good place to start. France is a little frustrating when you first start researching there, but it's not too hard to get records back to the Revolution. Once you get to the Revolution the whole thing changes again. Then you're going to look primarily at religious records and military service records. The probated wills still exist but you'll need a hand from a French researcher to find them. Good luck."
edjdonnell :
"first rule of thumb when asking a genealogical question: what name are you looking for. I'm sure every genealogist asked the same question I did,: what name are you looking for? nest would be date range, and some kind of location. So whats the name, you would be surprised what others can find, that you may have thought you went over with a fine tooth comb, it happens all the time. misspellings, wrong names, wrong locations, dates incorrect etc. it happens almost all the time, few have accurate family stories, we get things mixed up often. so give us a name, and let some fresh eyes look over things for you."
