Just as in the United States, wills in France are not published online. They do have a central registry of wills database. However, you have to have a valid death certificate to obtain a copy. You can read more here:

You can also contact the Notaire. They are limited in what they can tell you though. They can give you further information that is NOT available anywhere online.

You might also want to contact a lawyer in France for help.

Kind regards,
