=== Last Chance for Cruise Early-Bird Pricing! ==================


Monday (March 15th) is the last day for Early-Bird Pricing for the 6th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise hosted by Wholly Genes, Inc. Don't miss this chance to get a $50 on-board credit per person, making this year's conference/cruise less expensive than any since 2005!


There's special low prices for those traveling alone and we've arranged _even_lower_ prices for those traveling with a group or family. For a limited time, the 3rd and 4th person in a cabin is just $549!


This annual event is always a big hit and, as always, we've got top-tier speakers to teach you how to be a better researcher. This year's speakers include:


- Lloyd Bockstruck, the 30-year veteran Supervisor of the Dallas Public Library. Upon his retirement in 2009, he was described as "easily the most sought after lecturer for annual seminars of local and state genealogical societies";


- Dr. Stephen P. Morse, whose long resume includes the development of the "One-Step" web portal, the extremely popular search engine for the Ellis Island databases and dozens of other on-line resources;


- Hank Jones, FASG, noted genealogist, author, popular speaker, singer, songwriter, and former Hollywood actor;


- Megan Smolenyak, professional genealogist, extremely-popular author and speaker on research methodology, DNA, and other topics;


- Craig Scott, CG, certified genealogist, publisher, speaker, and military record expert.


Users of The Master Genealogist (TMG) will also hear how to make use of that software and companion programs from Bob Velke, John Cardinal, Lee Hoffman, Kent Riggins, and the technical support staff.


Please join us in a great educational experience and relaxing vacation as we travel round-trip from Miami, visiting Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Roatan, Honduras, plus three days at sea for the conference.
