2nd Annual Heritage Books Cruise Announced for October 2015

Craig Scott, the owner of Heritage Books, sent information about the 2nd Annual Heritage Books Cruise, scheduled for October 18-28, 2015 sailing from Fort Lauderdale, visiting Aruba, Cartagena, Colombia, Panama Canal, Colon, Panama, Limon, Costa Rica, and Grand Cayman, and returning to Fort Lauderdale.

The genealogy program is described as:
Approximately 20 hours of DNA lectures presented by the preeminent experts in their fields. The main speakers are Angie Bush, CeCe Moore and Blaine Bettinger. These are the best people in the world to take us from the DNA beginner to the person that is comfortable with the topic and knows how to navigate this interesting new tool in genealogy.  
Join us for an educational and fun-filled 10 day partial transit of the Panama Canal. Leaving from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on the Coral Princess on 18 October 2015 to Aruba then on to Cartagena, Colombia; Panama Canal and Colon, Panama; Limon, Costa Rica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; and back to Ft. Lauderdale on 28 October 2015.
You will be among friends (old and new) and fellow researchers from around the world as you soak up new knowledge and skills through a lecture series that rivals any regional or national genealogy conference - at one remarkably-low price that includes meals, taxes, port charges, onboard entertainment, and conference events. The price list and CruiseWeb contact information can be found here.
As popular as our lecture series is, many veterans of our conference value something else even more. That is the opportunity to share a meal with a world-class genealogist or to schedule one-on-one time to discuss their specific research challenges. Come armed with your records and be prepared to hear about new resources, repositories, and finding aids that will help you to break down those brick walls. Some people find these private consultations alone to be worth the trip.
In addition to our normal evening Stump Craig sessions, hosted by Craig R. Scott, there will be a Stump Craig session during one of the at sea days. Specifically for those people who are not night owls.   
Bring your spouse/companion who will find plenty to do on board while you enhance your DNA skills. Then spend the meals, evenings, and port days together for a truly memorable vacation! No lectures conflict with in-port periods. 
What could be better than a cruise to Panama, and a first-class genealogy conference focused on DNA all rolled into one???

This is an excellent opportunity to learn about using DNA for your genealogy research, plus have a vacation with your spouse or significant other in warm, beautiful and exotic places.  This is equivalent to a weekend conference, and it's on one of the HOT topics in genealogy today.

Linda and I went on the 2014 Heritage Books cruise two months ago and really enjoyed it.  I recommend it!
