Thank-you to Craig R. Scott, CG for sending me info about the 10th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise, hosted by Heritage Books, Inc in consultation with Wholly Genes, Inc. to be held Nov 29-Dec6, 2014. This year it's a 7-night Mexican Riviera Cruise, departing Los Angeles aboard the Crows Princess. I sooooo want to ask Mr. Myrt for this as an early Christmas present!
Craig explains: " Approximately 17 hours of genealogy, technology and DNA lectures presented by the preeminent experts in their fields.
Join us for an educational and fun-filled voyage from Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta then on to Mazatlan, then on to Cabo San Lucas and back to Los Angeles, while we learn about genealogical research methods, sources, tools, technologies and DNA from some of the foremost experts in those fields.
You will be among friends (old and new) and fellow researchers from around the world as you soak up new knowledge and skills through a lecture series that rivals any regional or national genealogy conference - but at one remarkably-low price that includes meals, taxes, port charges, onboard entertainment, and conference events.
As popular as our lecture series is, many veterans of our conference value something else even more. That is the opportunity to share a meal with a world-class genealogist or to schedule one-on-one time to discuss their specific research challenges. Come armed with your records and be prepared to hear about new resources, repositories, and finding aids that will help you to break down those brick walls. Some people find these private consultations alone to be worth the trip. Several evening group brickwall discussions add to the learning experience.
Bring your spouse/companion who will find plenty to do on board while you enhance your research skills. Then spend the meals, evenings, and port days together for a truly memorable vacation!
What could be better than a cruise to the warm waters of the Mexican Riviera, and a first-class genealogy conference all rolled into one???
This event is nearly always sold out so register early to avoid missing your chance to join us!"
