3rd Annual Heritage Books Genealogy Conference and Cruise in September 2016

I received this press release from Craig Scott, the owner of Heritage Books and sponsor of these cruises:


Join us for an educational and fun-filled voyage on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Liberty of the Seas when it leaves from Galveston, Texas to sail to Cozumel, Mexico then on to George Town, Grand Cayman; Falmouth, Jamaica; and back to Galveston, Texas, while we learn about genealogical research methods, sources, tools, technologies and from some of the foremost experts in those fields. 

The speakers will be Cyndi Ingle, Paula Stuart-Warren, Paul Milner, David Rencher, J. Mark Lowe, and Craig R. Scott.

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 - but at one remarkably-low price that includes meals, taxes, port charges, onboard entertainment, and conference events.

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.  Several evening group brick wall discussions add to the learning experience.

All of the conference sessions occur while the ship is at sea and will not conflict with ports of call.

What could be better than a cruise to the warm waters of the Caribbean, and a first-class genealogy conference all rolled into one???

This event is very popular so register early for the best stateroom selection!

Each link to click for more information goes to a page with the same promotional text. Genealogists want to know the speakers' topics, but they are not given.
