The Departmental Archives of Gard (FR: Archives Départementales de le Gard) is the official archive for Department 30 in France.

France divides the country into numbered administrative regions, called departments. Department 30 is named after the Gardon River.

This department doesn’t have many digitized records but their site links to digitized records at other sites within the Department so I’ve linked them here.
