Unlock the Past's first genealogy cruise now underway

Australian based Unlock the Past's first genealogy cruise is now underway, sailing for seven days from Brisbane, to Noumea (New Caledonia), Lifou (New Caledonia), and Vila (Vanuatu) and back. The company's sister organisation Gould Genealogy has blogged about the trip at www.gouldgenealogy.com/2011/03/unlock-the-pasts-first-history-and-genealogy-cruise-sets-sail/

Later in the year, I'll be joining the team for a fourteen day genealogy cruise from Australia to New Zealand and back. The cruise will be focussed to an extent on a Scottish and Irish theme, with many speakers including Shauna Hicks, Jan Gow, Rosemary Kopittke, Perry McIntyre, Richard Reid, Keith Johnson, Dan Lynch (providing particular expertise on online research) and yours truly. As well as being a lot of fun in the genealogical sense, I'm also bringing my wife and two boys, each of whom will be celebrating a birthday on board! I haven't told them that their job is to row the boat yet though!

For more on the next cruise visit www.unlockthepast.com.au/events/history-and-genealogy-cruise-november-2011-scottish-irish-theme - and keep an eye on Gould Genealogy's blog for a future news update on the present cruise! Bon voyage all!
