The 20th annual National Genealogy Congress got off to a rousing start on Friday in the modern and most comfortable buildings of the university for electrical engineering. This is in the suburb of Paris, Champs-sur-Marne, about an hour out of the city on the rattling and swaying suburban train, the RER. The exhibition halls have 184 stands and the programme has an impressive line-up of 63 speakers and four workshops.
The folks from the land of Brie had also created a poster entitled, "Our Cousin, Hillary", which traced the ancestors of Hillary Clinton from Jacques Guerin, who lived in Louvres in 1440, to Robert Navarre, born in 1709 in Gressy and died in 1791 in Detroit.
