This page has been automatically translated from French into English by a translation software. Automatic translations are not as accurate as translations made by professional human translators. Nevertheless these pages can help you understand information published by the City of Brussels.
In Brussels, the memory of the City is stored in its Archives service.
The Archives Service cannot make all the genealogical searches. The demands can only be introduced at genealogical associations. In the reading room, large number of tools can be consulted to obtain information.
The books of the libraries of the Archives service are available for consultation in the reading room (cf. conditions of consultation and reproduction of archives).
Other archives in Brussels
The Archives of the City of Brussels must not be confused with the other services like the State Archives of Belgium. These have their central seat in Brussels and keep the archives of the federal state and its predecessors.
Other services or associations can also be consulted for genealogical research (the Archives service does not make genealogical researches for third parties).
