Wholly Genes Cruise to Alaska! September 16-23, 2012

Wholly Genes 8th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise

As you may have read in today’s post about Genealogy Tourism over at Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter, heritage travel is big business.  And one aspect of this tourism and travel niche is the concept of a genealogy cruise.

I’m pleased to announce that I will be one of several speakers on the upcoming 8th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise sponsored by Wholly Genes, Inc.  The cruise, which leaves out of Seattle and travels to Alaska and along the Inside Passage, departs Sunday, September 16, 2012 and returns the following Sunday, September 23, 2012.

Besides visiting exciting ports and viewing the scenery of the Alaska coastline, while at sea, you will be able to partake in 17 hours of genealogy and technology lectures delivered by some very well known speakers including:

  • Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL
  • J. Mark Lowe, CG
  • Debra S. Mieszala, CG
  • Paul Milner, M.Div
  • Craig Scott, MA, CG

and yours truly, Thomas MacEntee! You can learn much more about genealogy cruising and how you can join me for this event by clicking here. I hope you’ll join me for what I’m sure will be a fun and educational week with other genealogists!

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
