The National Congress of Genealogical Sciences is held every two years. Most of the attendees are genealogy enthusiasts, professionals, or those interested in heraldry. 2013 will be the year of the XXII National Congress of Genealogy. The National Congress will be held later this week in Marseille.

The National Congress of Genealogical Sciences will take place on May 31, 1 and 2 June 2013 at the Palais des Congrès de Marseille, Parc Chanot. The theme of this year's event is "BACK TO BASICS." The "guest of honor" country has been designated: Greece
According to the Congress' web site (aided by Google Translate), "It is in history that are Marseille, in France, the earliest evidence of the existence of this science now called 'genealogy'."
