Les naturalisations françaises et leurs archives
Lorsqu’un ancêtre ou un lointain cousin a émigré en France et s’y est définitivement installé, il a souvent souhaité devenir français. Il a alors entamé une procédure de naturalisation parfois longue et souvent compliquée… Elle a donné lieu à la constitution d’un dossier conservé aujourd’hui aux Archives nationales, incroyable et essentielle source d’informations sur le demandeur et sa famille. Complexe par ses règles qui n’ont cessé d’évoluer, la naturalisation l’est aussi par la procédure qu’il faut suivre pour vérifier l’existence d’un dossier et pouvoir ensuite le consulter. Heureusement, les Archives nationales ont récemment facilité les démarches. Une fois obtenu, le dossier a toutes les chances de se révéler instructif sur la vie de la famille, en France mais aussi dans le pays d’origine.
