Database of the earliest burials in Père-Lachaise

For historians and genealogists Marie Beleyme has posted a user-friendly database more than 3,000 of the earliest burials in Père-Lachaise on her website: http://perelachaisehistoire.fr/releve-des-inhumations-au-pere-lachaise-1804-1815/.

Drawing on her exhaustive study of the daily registers of burials in the cemetery (now accessible on the city archives webpage (http://archives.paris.fr/r/216/cimetieres/) she provides a much easier and quicker way of accessing the same critical information: you can arrange her database by order of burials, name, or date of inhumation (typically one-three days after death). You can also use the search box to track down specific individuals.
