The French Federation of Genealogy, La Fédération Française de Généalogie, held its 2011 Congress in Lille, France from 2-4 June. Click on the image to the right to see a larger picture.
The Federation is an umbrella organization of more than 150 genealogy associations. My French isn't very good but, with the help of Google Translate, I believe the Federation's web site talks about the genealogy associations gathering to discuss the topic of the moment, "the reuse of public information."
