The Royal Association of Hidalgos of Spain is organising the 1st International Congress of Young Genealogists, which will take place in Madrid on 17 and 18 February 2023, with the collaboration of the International Confederation of Genealogy and Heraldry, the International Academy of Genealogy, the International Institute of Genealogy and Heraldry and the International Institute of Genealogy and Family History, under the motto: "Retrospective, actuality and future of a historiographic science".
The 1st International Congress of Young Genealogists aims to encourage the participation of young people in the Congresses of Genealogy, Nobiliary and Heraldry, to give continuity to the academic meetings held on these disciplines and to create an environment conducive to the relationship and interaction of young people, based on their study and social activities related to
The first edition of the Congress is dedicated to the memory of the eminent genealogist Michel Teillard d'Eyry (1940-2022), who was President of the International Confederation of Genealogy and Heraldry (2002-2014) and President of the International Academy of Genealogy (1998-2021). During his years at the head of the International Academy of Genealogy, the International Colloquia of Genealogy were organised in Moscow (1999), San Marino (2001), The Hague (2003), Paris (2005), Iași (2007), Guimarães (2009), Bologna (2011), St. Petersburg (2013), Madrid (2015), Montreal (2017), Warsaw (2019) and Messina (2021).
Participation in the 1st International Congress of Young Genealogists can be as a speaker or as an assistant. Speakers must be between 18 and 39 years of age in 2023. However, the organisation may propose the participation of speakers over 39 years of age, when this is of special interest for the development of the Congress.
The Congress will be held both in person and online, in order to facilitate the participation of young people from anywhere in the world. The papers must be original and unpublished and priority will be given to genealogists from countries that have had close historical relations with Spain or whose papers are related to these countries.
The papers presented at the 1st International Congress of Young Genealogists that meet the requirements set out by the Congress organisers will be published in a special edition of the prestigious journal Hidalguía, as part of the proceedings of the Congress. Hidalguía magazine was founded in 1953 and is a publication belonging to the Royal Association of Hidalgos. It is the
world's leading journal in these disciplines and will celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2023.
Over two days, the Royal Association of Hidalgos of Spain will host the participants gathered around the programmed academic activities. The Congress will conclude with the traditional Carnival Party that the Royal Association organises every year on Carnival Saturday at a select venue in Madrid to bring together the young associates and their guests, and which Congress
participants may join if they wish to do so.
The call for proposals for papers for the 1st International Congress of Young Genealogists is now open, with a deadline of 30 September 2022.
