Can you believe that it is already 02/02/2020?! This new year seems to be speeding by at a brisk pace.
Certainly you've heard about my genealogy cruises. We sail in 203 days from Seattle to Alaska where we will take in the sights and learn about our favorite topic, genealogy.
Right now is the time to book this adventure because Princess has a sale that includes free gratuities, WiFi, and beverages.
Who will be there? Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage, David Allen Lambert, Tami Mize of Conference Keeper, Cyndi Ingle of Cyndi's List and I will be providing the presentations and genealogical advice.
It's going to be a great time! Contact our travel agent Terri O'Connell about registering for this or our cruises to Mexico or New England in 2021. Let me know if you'd like to be a member of our Facebook group.
