Advice about archives regarding colonial Algeria

Noëmie Duhaut's picture

Dear all,

I am looking for documents about Adolphe Crémieux’s clients and the cases he was involved in as a lawyer in Algeria. I have already checked at the Alliance Israélite Universelle archives, in his personal file at the Archives Nationales and at the Bibliothèque Nationale, and did not find anything there. 

Would anyone know where I could locate this kind of documents ? At the Archives Nationales d’Outre-Mer, in the national archives in Algiers or somewhere else?  

I know that L'Echo d'Oran reported on at least one of the cases he was involved in. Does any library have the entire collection? The relevant issue (21 August 1860) is missing at the BNF, and it is not at the ANOM either. 

Finally, does anyone have contact details for archivists and librarians at the national archives and library in Algiers ?

All best,
