French SIG #France RE: frenchsig digest: December 01, 2019 #france

Dear Rosanne and Pierre,
First of all, thousand thanks for the dedicated work you two have put into
the French SIG for years and years!
I was thinking what could have contributed to the decline in the once so
active SIG. Knowing Pierre's age (like mine), one reason could be the
retirement of older hobby-genealogists and the lack of young people
joining our community.
Furthermore: I assume that many, perhaps most, French SIGgers are not
living in the USA and therefore not so able to attend IAJGS Conferences. I
remember the times, when more people were asking for help and were also
given advice. It would be a pity to let the French SIG die "due to natural
causes". Is this ageing process occurring also in other SIGs?
Unable to help, I can only hope you will find after all members able and
ready to take up responsibilities.

Dear FrenchSIG members,
The time is growing closer for any possible papers, thoughts for
meetings,=C2=A0 >from FrenchSIG members at this coming year's IAJGS Conferen=
in San Diego CA.
We have close to 1000 members, and it is very discouraging to your
Coordinators to have no responses >from anyone on our list! How many of
you are considering attending?=C2=A0 Is there any reason for us to even
schedule a Meeting, Luncheon? We would love to have some of you
willing to step up to learn the ropes for taking over as Coordinators,
Moderators! We have not had a Webmaster in a few years, because no one
If interest in French research is so low perhaps we should just let this
SIG die.=C2=A0 Is that what you would all like?
Please let us know your thoughts on these matters?=C2=A0 Is there anything
that you would like the SIG to do or participate in please let us know
ASAP! Pierre has been very busy adding new database material.
We are still hoping to hear >from some of you, so that we can make
Conference arrangements before it is too late!
