Hi, could anyone hint at useful online resources for locating ancestors in the Alsace region? This area was handed between Germany and France several times in the 18 and 1900s, and I am struggling getting below my 2nd great grandparents who were from this area. I have gotten as far as these four people:
All of them were born about the middle of the 1800s, and they have some connections to the town of Saverne/Zabern.
Well, I got links for the public records of Bas-Rhin (http://etat-civil.bas-rhin.fr/adeloch/index.php) and Haut-Rhin http://www.archives.cg68.fr/Services_Actes_Civils.aspx(), they proved very useful. An index of French online resources is at http://fr.geneawiki.com/index.php/Archives_en_ligne.
