ACROSS MY DESK: 2006 WhollyGenes Genealogy Cruise
NOTE: This is just in from Bob Velke. That that in
the first day they sold 25% of their space!
ANNOUNCING THE 2006 GENEALOGY CONFERENCE AND CRUISE Hosted by Wholly Genes Software
You're invited to join us on a grand adventure, an educational experience, and a fun-filled voyage through the Mexican Riviera while we learn about genealogical research methods, tools, and technologies from some of the most popular speakers and authorities in those fields. Last year's event was sold out in less than 2 weeks and the conference and cruise were a great success!
Again this year, we are proud to offer a first-class lineup of speakers and at least 12 hours of lectures on a wide variety of topics that are relevant to every family history researcher. Users of The Master Genealogist (TMG) (or other interested researchers) will have access to at least an additional 8 hours of instruction that is specific to that software and its companion products.
Best of all, the conference will be conducted on a 7-night cruise which visits such exotic Mexican ports of call as Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. All lectures are scheduled while the ship is at sea so that you can spend the days at port relaxing on exotic beaches, visiting Mayan ruins, snorkeling, swimming with the dolphins, or participating in any number of other optional guided shore excursions.
What better environment could there be to enhance your research skills while soaking up the sun and enjoying a relaxing week-long vacation?
Scheduled speakers and presentations include:
By popular demand, there will be an encore presentation by Dick Pence, the computer genealogy pioneer, who will entertain us with ""Two Longs and a Short and Other Tales of the Old West."
Bob Velke, President of Wholly Genes Software, will conduct several workshops about The Master Genealogist (TMG) that are geared to users of different skill levels. Other expert users and leaders in the TMG community will also be participating, including:
Most speakers will also be available for scheduled private consultations
("One-on-Ones") and will host one or more casual breakfasts with small groups. This is a great opportunity to get personalized advice and rub elbows with a long list of professional genealogists and expert software users.
There will be door prizes and other surprises too!
And at prices starting at just $825 per person (including lodging, food, port fees and taxes, and attendance to all conference lectures), it will probably cost less than a week at your local Holiday Inn -but it will be much more fun! Space is limited so don't delay in making your reservation.
