Day 3 on the Crown Princess at Sea, In Class

Linda and I are on the Crown Princess cruise ship, leaving Los Angeles on 29 November, stopping at Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas, and returning to Los Angeles on Saturday, 6 December.  This is a genealogy cruise, sponsored by Heritage Books, and organized by Craig Scott.

The Genealogy Cruise part of this cruise is four days of genealogy education presented by Craig Scott, Cyndi Ingle, Angie Bush, Bill Litchman, and J. Mark Lowe.  What a great lineup!  You can see details at We're Going Cruising on 29 November to 6 December Out Of Los Angeles.

We are at sea somewhere off the coast of Baja California today.  It is the second day of our genealogy classes.

The planned activities today on board are:

*  8:30  to 9:30 a.m. - J. Mark Lowe on "Constructing an Ancestor Through Mortgages"
*  9:45 to 10:45 a.m. - Cyndi Ingle - "The Hidden Web: Digging Deeper"
*  11 a.m. to 12 noon - Bill Litchman - "Methodology and Analytical Thought"

*  12 noon to 2 p.m.:  Lunch

*  6 to 8 p.m. - Dinner
*  8:30 to 9:30 p.m. - One on One Conferences in the Conference Center

We will sail to Puerto Vallarta on Tuesday night, arriving there on Tuesday morning.

I do not have my laptop computer with me on this cruise, and refuse to pay the high fee for Internet access, so I will post summaries and photographs after we return.
