I applied for copies of my father and grand parents birth and marriage certificates at www.acte-etat-civil.fr over a month ago and have not heard anything. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this site before. I suspect this is a central location for applying and the actual fulfillment is made by the town the act took place. I am just curious how long I should expect before I get these documents back here in the states, or reapply? Considering they want these documents to be less than 3 months old I would think it isnt fair to take that long to get them as one could have "expired" by the time you got others.
