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 http://www.unlockthepast.com.au/events/history-and-genealogy-cruise-november-2011-scottish-irish-theme/presentation-outlines.

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!

Chris
