The Research Guide on World War 2
→ To benefit from a guided search, explanations concerning the organisation of the company and a hierarchical filing system.
The Guide is the key to understanding how the different entities of SNCF work and thereby their documentation.
The historical archives (presently only archives of the 1939-1945 period are accessible online)
→ For a general search using keywords.
The database is more efficient, however the archive folders are not organised according to a filing plan.
When working on SNCF's World War 2 archives, I solemnly commit myself:
* quote systematically the sources I use from these collections.
* To make sure that the use I
will make of the information contained in the documents I am about to read under French archival
law, will not prejudice rights or interests that are protected by law.
