Clarification on the period of accessible records?

Hi everyone. I was wondering whether anyone who speaks french could help with some basic data regarding the period of currently accessible records, and also their location?

We have the digitally indexed archive here:


Which runs from 1830 to 1904, and also now includes non indexed scans of books from 1904 to 1910. Does this research go up to 1910 due to a 100 year limit on accessing records, or does it go up to 1910 because that is simply how far they have got?

Can we access records after 1910 by contacting somebody, or is it legally impossible? If we can, how?

Also, where are these records? Are they held in France or in Algeria?

I ask these questions because there are events in my family tree that happened between 1910 and 1920, and there are also events that happened in 1909 which I cannot find. To be more specific there is a marriage in Berrouaghia in 1909, while there is no book for this region in the online archive.
