Article
During the last decades, family ties have been the object of much research conducted by historical demographers and historians of the family. This is mostly due to two factors. First, the great diversity of relations existing both within and on the border of the family has been fully accounted for. Secondly, a reflection has started on the complexi...

Alliances between the Parisian Jewish upper class and the Christian aristocracy and bourgeoisie are no longer exceptional starting from the Second Empire. They are numerous up to the 1914 war and then become rarer thereafter for the aristocracy, unlike the bourgeoisie for which the trend continues to grow during the interwar period. Marriages in wh...
Article
Like father, like son: is the bequest behavior of children “inherited” from that of their parents? Most economic models (altruistic, paternalistic or exchange models) postulate that bequest behavior does not depend per se on parents’ behavior. Yet because of data limitations, few empirical studies have analyzed the link between bequests left and in...
Article
Marriage choices can not be treated as isolated phenomena. They draw their meaning from how they are distributed and combined so as to form complex patterns whose study requires the use of computerized tools. While computers have been used in the study of kinship for over forty years, an instrument capable of making a complete matrimonial census of...

Les choix matrimoniaux ne sauraient être traités comme des éléments isolés. Ils n'acquièrent leur signification que par la manière dont ils se distribuent et se combinent pour former des agencements complexes dont l'étude est difficilement envisageable sans recours à un traitement informatique. Si l'ordinateur a été introduit il y a une quarantaine...

Article
Matrimonial witnesses, despite their limited number (two for each spouse) can serve as a barometer for measuring the intensity of family and professional ties that link witnesses and couples. The superposition of these two dimensions and the study of marriage certificates listing at least three witnesses practicing the same profession shed light on...

This paper uses historical data from the "3 000 familles" covering individuals in the Lower Loire departemen...

Article
This research seeks to trace the transfer of wealth down the male line of a rural French family through the 19th and 20th centuries, and to decipher the logic of accumulating and transferring wealth. The subject will be approached from an angle different from that of Segalen [Ethnol. Fr. 8 (1978) 271], who followed which farmers had cultivated the...
