Unlock the Past Cruise 2013

clip_image002We are into Day 4 of the Unlock The Past Cruise 2013 and because of electrical problems are still in Noumea and will be missing out on Fiji – such is life at sea !! The ship Voyage of the Seas is huge and I am sure that many of the 140 participants will use today to explore the ship as no presentations are scheduled.

It has been a privilege and pleasure to be associated with the other presenters such as Jill Ball, – the genealogy techno whizz, Paul Milner who is speaking on British Isles records and Shauna Hicks an expert on Australian research. So far I have given my “London Cemeteries & their Records” and “Researching New Zealand Ancestors from afar” talks, both have been well received and I have been asked by Alan Philips of Gould Books who organises the cruise to speak on next year’s cruise.

I’ll upload some photos when I return home, the internet is horribly expensive on-board and it would clear out the bank account to do so whilst here !! Meanwhile I shall remain sitting beside the pool with an exotically coloured cocktail close at hand. Oh what a great life on the oceans waves!!


  1. It was so exciting to finally meet you in person, Linda. Thanks for the super times we shared on board.

  2. It was lovely to meet you Linda and I appreciated your suggestions in the Research Help Zone. I’ll let you know if I can break down that brick wall 🙂
