Congrès Paris 2012 Généaloj

Dear friends,

Our program is expanding. Every day we receive new exciting proposals. At
least 200 hours of lectures and meetings are already scheduled. No time to
be bored whatever your area of interest or your language : every hour you
will find at least a lecture, a workshop, a film or a SIG meeting concerning
this area. And if you really do not find any, why not visit the resource
room, the vendor's room or one of our exhibitions?

Make sure to be there on Sunday morning and not to leave until Wednesday
evening because our program will start at top speed and the latest lecture
on Wednesday night will be no less exciting than the first ones or the ones
proposed on Monday or Tuesday.
