Information about the city About Paris : The History of Paris spans over 2,500 years, during which time the city grew from a small Gallic settlement to the multicultural capital of a modern European state and one of the world's major global cities .The capital and largest city of France, in the north-central part of the country on the Seine River. Founded as a fishing village on the Île de la Cité, Paris (then called Lutetia) was captured and fortified by the Romans in 52 B.C. Clovis I made it the capital of his kingdom after A.D. 486, and Hugh Capet established it as the capital of France after his accession to the throne in 987. Through the succeeding centuries, Paris grew rapidly as a commercial, cultural, and industrial center. The city was occupied by the Germans in World War II from June 14, 1940, to August 25, 1944. Population: 2,110,000. History In 1993 the Department of Health and Human Service's Administration for Children and Families (ACF) began working with State public assistanceagencies (SPAAs) and other Federal agencies to develop information-sharing projects proven useful in verifying public assistance client circumstances. ACF sought to identify information-sharing opportunities, and to lead and coordinate the activities required to take advantage of these opportunities. As a result, ACF is able to provide SPAAs with information from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) compensation and pension payment records and interstate public assistance benefit payments.
