I wrote recently about the successful Wholly Genes genealogy conference and cruise. It seems the folks "down under" do the same. Auckland Libraries and the New Zealand Society of Genealogists hosted a day of family history seminars as part of an "Unlock the Past" history and genealogy conference cruise.
The 14-day cruise features a Scottish and Irish Theme. It is a cruise from Auckland, New Zealand, to Sydney, Australia, and features 8 one-day stops in between.
International guests include acclaimed Scottish and Irish family historian and keynote speaker Chris Paton (from Scotland), Irish experts - Perry McIntyre, Richard Reid, Keith Johnson, as well as Shauna Hicks, Jan Gow (NZ), Rosemary Kopittke.
The conference's cruise ship left Auckland to continue its journey to Australia via Tauranga, Napier, Wellington, Picton, Akaroa and Dunedin.
