As I often write in this newsletter, I will be traveling for a while. This time it is a bit different: I am going on a longer trip and I am combining genealogy with tourism.
I am leaving Thursday morning, August 21, and will be gone for ten days, returning home on August 31. My primary purpose of the trip is to attend the Who Do You Think You Are? Live expo in Glasgow, Scotland. However, I am leaving a week early to (1.) get used to the time zone change and (2.) to be a tourist traveling around Scotland. I will spend some time in the Highlands and on the Isle of Skye. I will also stop by Loch Ness to check on the status of Nessie.
I will be traveling with an iPad and a laptop computer, a wireless cellular modem, and wi-fi networking as well so I should be able to post new newsletter articles while I am traveling. However, I doubt if I will have much time available. As a result, you may not see as many new articles posted here as normal for a few days. However, I do hope to post reports and pictures from the Who Do You Think You Are? Live expo in Glasgow.
A note to Plus Edition subscribers: I normally send weekly email newsletters on Sunday evenings. However, next Sunday I expect to be in a small hotel in the Highlands that may or may not have wi-fi installed. The following Sunday I will spend many hours in the air, over the Atlantic, returning home. I suspect that both weekly newsletters will be delayed a day or two but will be sent eventually. Please don’t be surprised if the newsletter does not appear in your in-box at the time it normally does.
