Marine Soulas
40% from Normandy and 100% passionate about genealogy

Based in Paris, I’m a French professional genealogist and I’ve been passionate about genealogy for more 15 years. Do you have any French ancestors? Thanks to my knowledge of the French archives and history, I can help you trace your ancestry in France.

My name is Marine and I’m convinced that family history can be fascinating for young and old alike as it is a fantastic way to gather all generations around their common history.

A surname that sounds French, a town of origin in France, sometimes in addition to a DNA test showing an ethnic group in France… That’s it, you’ve discovered an ancestor with a French origin! How to trace them back in France? It can be difficult if you don’t know the various resources available, if you cannot come on-site and if you don’t read French.

That’s why I’m here and happy to help you discover your French story, I can:

• look for the parish records, civil records, military records and the notarial deeds (marriage contract, will…) of your ancestors in France,
• translate for you these records in English,
• deep dive into your family story and provide you with a booklet containing all the French records I have found and relevant information about the places where your ancestors lived in France.
