Good evening, recently I discovered an archive site for the Haute-Saone area of France. I tried several times to figure out how to use the site and used Google Chrome to translate the page. The site is http://archives.cg70.fr/ . Finally, last Friday, after much frustration I sent an email to the contact person in the help area. I asked for a read notification so I would know if they understood my email. Today I received an email that said the email was deleted without being read. I am shocked, do they not like foreigners, I wrote the note in English and French and explained I had used a translator and I hoped it was okay.

Does anyone know how to use this site? I can bring up images but it just says 1/200 but I can't figure out how to know which page will have the information I want to find. Am I supposed to browse through every record on the site looking for people?

Prior to this I have used the http://www.servancnaute.fr/actes/rechavancee.php - which I love this site but I was hoping I could locate the people I can't find on the new site. I have to say, I have never had someone just delete a message without reading it or sending a response.

Any help is appreciated, thanks, jane
