Day 2 on the Celebrity Millennium - At Sea (no genealogy classes)

Legacy Family Tree has about 250 persons on this cruise (out of about 2,100 passengers) which will leave San Diego and head for Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and we'll end up in fort Lauderdale on 7 October.  You can see more information about the cruise at

This is Day 2, and we are at sea having left San Diego on Sunday and we will be in Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday morning.

Since this is an "at sea" day, Legacy Family Tree has a full day planned for us with excellent speakers in the Conference Center on deck 3:

8:30 a.m.  Introductions and welcome.

9 a.m.  Megan Smolenyak: "Hey America, Your Roots Are Showing"

10 a.m.  Karen Clifford:  "Left Only a Trace"

11 a.m.  Geoff Rasmussen:  "What's New in Legacy Family Tree 8"

2 p.m.  Barbara Renick: "Eleven Layers of Online Searches"

3 p.m.  Dave Berdan: "Reporting with Legacy Family Tree"

Those classes should provide a full day of genealogy education.

Most of the classes have a handout which was sent to us in a PDF file by Legacy a few weeks ago.  I have it on my laptop and printed out some of the syllabus material.  I may just watch the presentations and read the syllabus rather than take notes on my tablet or laptop or phone.

I need to make sure I show up at the 8:30 session - I missed that last year in Oslo because I slept until almost noon (got up in time for lunch!

Note to self:  Take pictures!
