Last week I published an article of Wholly Genes, Inc. Announces a Genealogy Cruise and briefly described the cruise to the southern Caribbean. In the article, I wrote, "The announcement also states that additional speaker(s) will be announced." That has now happened. In fact, two additional speakers have been named:
John Humphrey, CG, is an award winning author who specializes in German and Pennsylvania research. He has lectured throughout the United States and in Germany. He is past president of the Mid-Atlantic Germanic Society, a past vice president of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, the former director of the National Genealogical Society Learning Center and a faculty member at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University.
Audrey Collins was a professional genealogist for many years before taking her current position as a Family History Specialist for The National Archives (TNA) in the United Kingdom. A Scot herself, she is the author of many books and magazine articles about English family research. She is also a blogger, hosts podcasts for TNA, and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).
The Wholly Genes web site that gives details of the 7th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise has also been updated with quite a bit more information. You can view the information at http://goo.gl/nEfbz and you also might be interested in the cruise discussion forum available at http://goo.gl/I3Dhq (That Discussion Forum was just created so you won't find much there just yet. However, I suspect that will change in the next few weeks.)
Are you thinking of joining the cruise but are not a user of The Master Genealogist? (I heard that concern last week at the NGS conference.) You will find that most of the presentations will interest you, even if you are a Mac user or if you use a different Windows genealogy program. Quoting from the Wholly Genes announcement:
While the hosting company, Wholly Genes, Inc., makes family history software, all of the events and lectures with expert researchers are software-neutral and relevant to every family researcher who wants to improve their skills. Users of The Master Genealogist (TMG) will have the opportunity to hear several additional non-conflicting presentations about how to make the most of that software and its companion products.
