2015 Poitiers french genealogical congress is over!

And it’s back in the office for Histoires de Familles! What a nice congress it was! The only downfall was the weather but let’s put that on the nice intention of not feeling homesick for a second 😉

A interested audience attended the congress, cruising the booths in search of that FH Society that will welcome them and their growing tree. There were a bunch of nice talks as well and nice workshops including some on how to hold a good genealogy blog. It was the only special event I could attend as I was so busy making contacts, possible clients with fascinating stories and catching up with old friends or making new ones. Talks with software ( Geneanet  genealogie.com and new comer Famicity and publications leaders ( Revue Française de Généalogie , Archives et Culture and Votre généalogie ) were really productive.  I was also particulary happy to meet the The French Genealogist and glad that she got to see the nice city of Poitiers as I only stayed in the congress area. I still got to manage a small visit to the Futuroscope. The rides seemed nice but I was more interested in the very modern architecture (usually not my kind of buildings but I must admit it fitted really nice in the scenery) and the beautiful nocturne show on the lake!

A very nice event thanks to a great organisation! I’m looking forward to the FH Show in Paris in 2016!

Here’s some pics of the congress! Enjoy!
