Research Services

If your message concerns a research request, please note that the Archives of the Hautes-Pyrénées do not carry out any genealogical research for several years now, unless there is a duly proven legal or administrative need. This is in order to better focus on the fundamental missions of the service (collection, classification, inventory, etc.).

Furthermore, due to the number of requests received, a more or less long period is necessary to process them. This situation obliges a specific treatment.
