YES! AMAZING!
THE WHOLE EVENT!
THE SHIP! (Voyager of the seas!)
THE MEALS!
THE LECTURES!
THE PEOPLE!
THE SHIPS STAFF!
THE FUN ON THE SHIP!
THE WALKS!
THE WHOLE EVENT!
AND
THE GENEALOGY!

FROM BEGINNING TO END!

The conference rooms we all knew very well by the end of the cruise.
But we came out of here at the end with amazing knowledge and help.

 
 Just look at the food art! we found as we made our selections for lunch
the choices were never ending!

There were many places to "check out" and lots and lots of fun things to do.

This car was in the "main street" level 5 of the ship and it was like walking down a beautiful street paved with tiles and with lots of shops and places to sit and enjoy the passing views and a little people watching. Rob could have easily tried to pocket this car!
but I said no! lol lol lol lol

 Shauna Hicks! an amazing lady who has so much to share with others about finding your family and ways to do it that you would never think to do!
We loved her talks and have taken from them so much information - it will be hard to know were to start putting it into our trees........but we will!

Paul Milner, another speaker from "far off places" - WAS AMAZING! he shared with us SO MUCH it was simply FNTASTIC!!! I think the light bulb came on in my head after his second lecture and I was filling up with ideas faster then I knew.
I would listen to Paul over and over again! a very special person who would be responsible for family trees all over the world that are filled with wonderful information that would otherwise stay locked away forever.

Looking forward to his lecture in Melbourne on March 4th......be there if you love your family tree.

There were many others who gave talks and I will add them soon to my blog, they were all wonderful and filled the air with stories and so much information. I wanted to capture every moment and bottle it all for the future. (being a country girl who preserves lol lol)

There are so many more photos to share and so much to tell you all but there is a storm coming and I need to get off this computer.

This is my Thursday! after an AMAZING week! on the high seas!

My GOODNESS!! Did you EVER have such a good time??!!

This sounds like a dream---especially all the info (though I didn't do our own research---Sis spent a week buried in the files in Salt Lake City a long time ago, and came out with many forebears we knew not of, and lots of info on the ones we knew).

I DO write about a lot of them, especially from my Mother's Mother's line, for they were MOST interesting---including a Madam of a bordello and one lady who killed a marauder in a most shocking fashion.

Always SO glad to hear from you, and can't wait to hear all your family tales and connections.

I know I have no family there or from there, but we MIGHT have some long-agos from England or Ireland or Scotland in common.

It was great to meet you and Mr Pear Tree Cottage on the cruise.

You beaming smoke that went everywhere with you on the trip showed just how much fun you were having.

The cruise sounds amazing. Cross fingers I can go in 2014.
I'd love to follow your blog. Is there a way of subscribing by email? I can't see a spot for that on the page.
Many thanks,
Janelle
