Making  French  Genealogy  Easier

Census Records of Dour in the Province of Hainaut 1857-1900

Back in late December 2023, FamilySearch committed a big snafu, and published images they weren’t supposed to. The Belgian Government gave FamilySearch a big slap on the hands. They removed most of the population records and the offensive civil records for the Province of Hainaut. Fortunately, FamilySearch had a second, somewhat damage set of films, that partially contain collection of years, indexes and census images. It does not contain all of what was offered before. The Censuses of Dour were scattered across different years and were disorganized to view.. Same years were dispersed through different volumes. What a mess! So in keeping with ‘Making French Genealogy Easier’ philosophy (I do this so you don’t have to), I organized what was left so as to be easier to navigate. I don’t know how long these images will be available, but I do hope they will be remain permanently. As an American, I look at the population registers of Belgium, as equivalent to our censuses.
