National Archives of Congo in Brazzaville

Good archival news just arrived today via H-Net: Jean-Pierre Bat and Vincent Hiribarren announced a new archival resource:

Archives de l’Afrique Équatoriale Française (Brazzaville)

dedicated to the colonial archives of French Equatorial Africa housed at the National Archives of Congo in Brazzaville. This site gives details on access conditions for potential researchers and retraces the history of the colonial archives kept in Brazzaville. More importantly, we have digitised a few sample documents and the inventories of the Gouvernement Général and the Inspection Générale de l’Enseignement.

“Ce site présente les archives du gouvernement général de l’AEF conservées à Brazzaville. Ces archives constituent un patrimoine partagé entre le Congo-Brazzaville, le Gabon, la Centrafrique, le Tchad et la France.”

Soyez les bienvenues!
