As internet charges aboard ship are very expensive I shan’t be posting any news until I return home on 20th February.

I am giving four talks whilst on-board and when I’m not doing that I shall be listening and learning at a host of presentations given by leading genealogists. What fun !!

See you all on the 20th when I am sure I will have lots to tell you Off on the Ocean Waves !!<p><!

Did you know that there are foreign language translation word lists on Ancestry.com ? They are under the Research Center tab at the top. Ancestry.co.uk doesn’t appear to have such lists, I suppose they assume that everything there is in English!!
