I don’t have to make these types of announcements very often, mostly because I tend to vacation where I can get an Internet connection. But starting tomorrow, Thursday, September 29, 2011 through Sunday, October 9, 2011, I will be on the Legacy Family Tree Cruise of New England and Canada along with almost 200 other genealogists. Once the cruise lands back in New York on Saturday, October 8, 2011, I will travel upstate to visit family and then return home to Chicago the next day.
So what does this mean to you, dear reader? Well with Internet being very high-priced on board the Explorer of the Seas, I won’t be able to tag all the posts for the Daily Blogging Prompts here nor will I be able to answer email as quickly as I usually do. It also means there will be no New Genealogy Blogs post for Saturday, October 8, 2011 but the feature will return the following week.
Friends and family have a betting pool going as to whether or not I will actually survive this “off the grid” event. At the very least they expect me to be hanging off the ship’s railing in port cities trying to pick up a signal on my netbook or iPhone.
I will be visiting many port cities and even meeting up with other members of GeneaBloggers and radio show listeners. And on Thursday, October 6, 2011 I will be leading an excursion with 50 of the cruise passengers to the New England Historic Genealogical Society for a day of research.
Finally, I will make updates as possible but there are no guarantees. But I’ve preposted for the next two weeks and GeneaBloggers Radio has some great special hosts and guests coming up so I think we’ll all get by.
