It would be a nonsense to build an entire english version of a french website filled with hundreds of archives written in old French.
So the english version will be only a frame with short notices introducing to the french archives.

Be indulgent with my English ... and you can contribute to this version.

    Thank you for a very interesting fact finding site, I am looking forward to seeing more of the pages in English.
    I do speak french but my writing in French is terrible, so please excuse me writing it in English.
    My husband & I have lived in France for just over 16 years & have researched about the area we live in. We have just move to a new house & are interested about finding out about it. The area is called Chateau Banal in the commune of Pressignac & the house was originally the old bread oven of the chateau, but I have not been able to find anything else more about it. Maybe there wasn’t an old chateau here, but we would still like to know more about the place. It would also clear up the problem with the post office in Chabanais, as they say we our address should be "Le clos des Peyrieres" & not "Chateau Banal" but Pressignac post office say it is. Any history you find out would be gratefully received.
    Thanks again I will be keeping an eye on the site frequently.

    Regards, Jacqueline Mallett (please withhold name & e-mail address)

      Hello Jacquie
      I’ve just seen your message and read about your address(es). Not, I’m afraid, that I’m writing because I can help. Rather to explain that I don’t think it’s likely anyone outside the commune would be able to either. I’ve found le Château Banal on the large scale ordnance map and see a line of dots and some squares which seem to mean there’s ruins or something, so there could have been a château of some kind from some time or other I suppose. Whatever, it certainly looks interesting and worth pursuing. I googled "château banal" by the way and found nothing useful.

      Hello Jacqueline,
      your enquiry about researching the history of your property is 3 years old now, so I doubt I can help you further. I have written an article on how to research the history of your house via the taxe fonciere records - I can send you a copy if you wish - though you may have done all of that already.
