A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a Plus Edition article about the growing popularity of genealogy cruises. I pointed out that cruises are starting to become as popular as national genealogy conferences. Indeed, these "conferences at sea" offer many of the same advantages as a traditional genealogy conference plus better accommodations, better food, and a wide variety of non-genealogy entertainment - as well as exotic ports of call.
In my article, I predicted that genealogy cruises are going to become more and more popular in the future. Indeed, one more cruise was announced this past week: RootsMagic Cruise 2007.
RootsMagic is a very popular genealogy program for Windows, produced by RootsMagic, Inc. The same company also produces Personal Historian and Family Atlas software programs. Now RootsMagic, Inc., is planning to hold a Caribbean genealogy cruise.
The RootsMagic Cruise will be held from November 11-18, 2007, aboard Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Sea. Classes will include general genealogy topics taught by some of the best-known speakers in the field, as well as classes on getting the most out of your RootsMagic, Personal Historian, and Family Atlas software, taught by the experts at RootsMagic.
More details will follow in the weeks to come. If you would like to be notified by email when reservations open, you can enter your e-mail address into a form at: http://www.RootsMagicCruise.com
