Day 7 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 all day, and this is the fourth day of genealogy classes in the Conference Center.

We will arrive in Los Angeles on Saturday morning, 6 December.

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.
