As you may have read in today’s post about Genealogy Tourism over at Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter, heritage travel is big business. And one aspect of this tourism and travel niche is the concept of a genealogy cruise.
I’m pleased to announce that I will be one of several speakers on the upcoming 8th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise sponsored by Wholly Genes, Inc. The cruise, which leaves out of Seattle and travels to Alaska and along the Inside Passage, departs Sunday, September 16, 2012 and returns the following Sunday, September 23, 2012.
Besides visiting exciting ports and viewing the scenery of the Alaska coastline, while at sea, you will be able to partake in 17 hours of genealogy and technology lectures delivered by some very well known speakers including:
- Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL
- J. Mark Lowe, CG
- Debra S. Mieszala, CG
- Paul Milner, M.Div
- Craig Scott, MA, CG
and yours truly, Thomas MacEntee! You can learn much more about genealogy cruising and how you can join me for this event by clicking here. I hope you’ll join me for what I’m sure will be a fun and educational week with other genealogists!
