We recently had the opportunity to attend a local genealogy gathering, in Brive-la-Gaillarde, capital of Corrèze. At such a gathering, or forum de généalogie, as is the term here, representatives of genealogy cercles, or associations, set up stands in a hall or garden and offer to help anyone researching in their department. A couple of years ago (Heavens! Have we really been writing this blog so long?) we wrote of such a forum at the national level in Paris, Géné@2010.
