Presentation

The folders and sheets from the French Central National Security File are particularly useful for:
  • find foreigners (there are residence permit files, naturalization applications, suspicion of espionage, deportation orders),
  • to know the political opinions of your ancestors,
  • and find the picture of an ancestor! In fact, it is not uncommon to find a photo in a file of the central file, or even several in the nominative files.
