Abstract

The studies on private forum showed the wide variety of written documents showing personal expression. In an attempt to understand the place of writing in the 19th century Parisien and, in particular, among the anonymous people who did not leave personal archives built up, the central ministry of notaries in Paris and the Ecole Nationale des Chartes examined the inventories drawn up by the Paris notaries in the first half of the 19th century. The survey was carried out in Saint Germain, a district of great social diversity where all strata were still represented at the beginning of the Monarchie de Jillet, before a remarkable rise in the easy bourgeoisie in this sector. Following the presentation of the methodology followed and a legal presentation of the post-death inventory in the 19th century, this contribution provides the first results of this research. While the search for private documents has yielded less than expected results, with the post-death inventory listing only the documents used for the succession, this survey provided a better understanding of the work of the notary and of the legal developments brought about by the Civil Code.
