Unlock the Past Scottish/Irish cruise - talks

A provisional list of talks being considered for the two week long Unlock the Past History & Genealogy Cruise from Auckland to Sydney in November of this year has been placed online at

Yours truly will be one of the speakers on the cruise, and the list includes about ten Scottish topics which I have proposed to talk on, as well as several others on Irish online resources, DNA, British WW1 civilian POWs, writing family history articles, and for a bit of fun in between, possibly even some basic beginners sessions in Scottish Gaelic if the interest is there! I am only part of the team, however, and the full list contains of over a hundred topics currently under consideration from Shauna Hicks, Rosemary Kopittke, Dan Lynch, Jane Gow, Perry McIntyre, Richard Reid and Keith Johnson.

It's going to be a packed and fun programme - for more information on the cruise itself, see

Hopefully see you there!
