Migrations et transmissions inter-générationnelles dans la France du XIXe et du debut du XXe siècle
AbstractThis paper questions the traditional homeostatic model by focusing on the role of family dynamics on the scope and nature of migrations. By using genealogical data, which draw on the demographic, social, and economic situations of fourty-four French families, linked to local data, we show that mobility and wealth cannot be explained at the individual level. The interplay between individual trajectories, family network and local amenities in migration decisions must be reconsidered. We shed new light on the meaning and quantitative magnitude of local mobility on nineteenth century families' destinies.
