My Genealogy Plan for Monday, 27 October

If all has gone well, we are "at sea" heading from New York City to St. Kitts in the eastern Caribbean. The genealogy highlights of the day include the start of the Wholly Genes Conference, including:

8:15 am - "Introduction to TMG" by Bob Velkje in Club Fusion.
9:30 am - "Filtering with TMG" by Bob Velke in Club Fusion.
10:45 am - "How to write your family history" by John Titford in Palm Dining Room.
12:00 noon - "Beyond Y-DNA: Your Genetic Genealogy Options" by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak in Princess Theater.
3:00 pm - "Genealogical Problem Solving: Professional Tips for Everyday Success" by Elizabeth Shown Mills in the Princess Theater.
4:15 pm - "Tracing Land Ownership" by Barbara Vines Little in the Princess Theater.
5:30 pm - "The Naming of the Green: Irish placenames and surnames" by John Grenham in the Princess Theater.

This is going to be such a great conference day! Fortunately, they give us from 1 pm to 3 pm to have lunch, kiss our spouses, and maybe take a walk or take a nap.
