Contrats France

Mensaje 03 Julio 2018, 21:17

Can anyone please tell me where to find records for Contrats France? I Google'd it, but could not find any information concerning the town. Is it a town that's no longer in existence?

Hello,

Are you sure this is a city ?
"contrats" means "contracts" in french, so maybe your source was a (marriage) contract and not a city record.
Or maybe your reading was not fully exact.

Can you show us where you have found this mention ?

Hi,

It could be Contrast (Tarn) which is now part of Montredon-Labessonnié...

Thank you so much for the information. I think it's a town. If you search for Contrats (as a town) in Geneanet it shows that it's an actual town. But what is interesting is that unlike the other towns, there's not an accompanying map (hopefully all that makes some kind of sense).

If you search for "Contrats" in Geneanet, a large number of results list Contrats (36990) as a town in departement Indre (36). User's trees mentioning this town do not cite their source for this information. "Contrats" is not listed as a current or former town in Indre :
Current : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_des_communes_de_l%27Indre
Former : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_des_anciennes_communes_de_l%27Indre

Also, the ZIP/INSEE code 36990 is unknown. Besides, there is no town called Contrats in the neighboring departments: Creuse, Cher, Vienne, Haute-Vienne, Cher, Loire-Et-Cher, Indre-et-Loire)

My guess is that it's an error spreading between trees. "Contrats" is not a town, but probably refers to "marriage contracts" or "notarial contracts" (i.e. not a place, but a source), in a given department.

Hi,

@lsfamily: I hadn't seen your reply... jpschuck is right: the mistake comes from two genealogical associations that have entered "contrats" under "town"... The two "departements" that are concerned are Indre and Vienne
