Friday, my husband Didier & I went to a big genealogy Congress which is sponsored by the Fédération Française de Généalogie or French Genealogy Federation. This national association is the mother association of almost all genealogy clubs in France .
Every 2 years, a Congress and Exposition takes place in a different host city.This time it took place in Tours, in Central France.
Here are a few pictures of the exposition that took place :

Inside the Hall
My husband, Didier at the stand of one of his ancestral regions. The young man next to him is a genealogy club member.
Charming genealogists in regional attire .
There were stands from just about every French region, on three levels .
The stand of the host Genealogy club, the Centre Généalogique de Touraine.Didier, my husband, is affiliated with this club because his maternal roots are in the region.
Continued success to all in your research . I will be back to my own research concerning the Anthracite Country ,in Pennsylvania. Stay tuned !
