Bibliographic Guides for French Nobility Genealogical Research
John P. DuLong
As a result of working on the Baillon and Le Neuf research projects I have come to appreciate several valuable tools for tracing French and other European noble and royal families. Here you will find my bibliographical guide to many of the resources my colleagues and I used to research the Baillon and Le Neuf pedigrees. In addition, one of the most important tools for tracing French nobles is Schwennicke's Europäische Stammtafeln (1980-1995). This is a collection of family trees for European noble and royal families. The work is in German, but there are many French families included. I hope you find these bibliographic guides of value.
Eventually, as time permits, I want to prepare and present my notes on the following works: Arnaud's Répertoire des généalogies françaises imprimées (1978-1982); Saffroy's Bibliographie généalogique, héraldique et nobiliaire de la France (1968-1988); Jougla de Morenas and de Warren's Grand Armorial de France (1975); Père Anselme's Maison royale de France (1967); and La Chenaye-Desbois's Dictionnaire de la noblesse (1980).
