We 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!!
