Unlock the Past cruise video

In March 2011, Australian company Unlock the Past (www.unlockthepast.com.au) organised its first ever genealogy cruise, which was a resounding success from all accounts!

The company has now posted a video online from the event, which has a real Scottish connection - it was filmed by top Leodhasach genie Mike Murray, who runs Time Trackers in Perth, WA, and who was one of the speakers. Some familiar faces are there to the Ozzie genealogy scene, including Mike, Shauna Hicks and Rosemary Kopittke, and some other familar faces to many UK readers I'm sure, such as Jeremy Palmer, who writes regularly for several UK magazines and also teaches Pharos courses.

As I've blogged about before, the next Unlock the Past Cruise is in November (see http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2011/02/new-zealand-scottishirish-genealogy.html), and will have a Scottish and Irish theme, though with a broader range of subjects also from Australia, New Zealand and back here in the British Isles. If you're wondering whether it is worth coming along, check out Mike's video. Remember the Irish and Scottish theme - it means not only will it be fun, it will also be good craic!



See you there!
