French records in Gloucestershire
edited April 24, 2022 in Indexing
Tried all day to index a batch from the project below but I can only get records that are written in French - seems strange in Gloucestershire, England, oui?
Just opened a batch to review, and they are also all in French. Apart from my ability to read French, am I missing something?0
If I understand correctly, there were a number of Huguenot (France refugees) immigrants to Gloucestershire. Hence, why some of the records are in French. I could readily index records in French tables, but not so much in the prose that often shows up in the Gloucestershire records. Thanks to the person who brought this to my attention earlier.1
I think there were French refugees in England during the French Revolution.
