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!
Next Congress’ll take place in Le Havre and sure will be as interesting and lively as this one!
