The sessions of The Week of Genealogy started officially on September 26th with the opening remarks by the president of the French Federation of Genealogy, Valerie Arnold-Gautier, followed by those of the president of the International Confederation of Genealogy and Heraldry, Dr Pier Felice degli Uberti and Dr Maria Loredana Pinotti degli Uberti, president of the International Academy of Genealogy, who welcomed all the participants and attendants and invited them to enjoy a full week presentations geared to help anyone with an interest in genealogy to be more aware of what is happening in this field.
During this week, the attendants will learn more about the nature and relationship of the archives at their disposal by means of a round-table with experts in this subject, as well as modern ways to access and organize data using modern artificial intelligence tools that enable users to improve their research to find their ancestors and roots. Other presentations will cover data privacy issues, DNA and the future of genealogy, as well as novelties in this field as presented by FamilySearch and MyHeritage.
