=== TMG v8 ===========================================


We realize that it’s been a while since we published news about TMG v8 but we want to assure you that we’re hard at work at it. We’ve recently had some breakthroughs in relation to some longstanding problems and we’re making progress toward a great release. We hope that we’ll be able to make an announcement before much longer and we appreciate your patience.

=== Cruise Lectures Announced ===========================


The 6th Annual Genealogy Conference and Cruise (Sept 18-25, 2010) is going to be a great event! While our group is technically sold out, there’s still some space on the ship at prices starting at just $953.86 per person (subject to availability). That price includes the 7-day cruise, food, port fees and taxes, shipboard entertainment, and attendance to all conference lectures and group events.


That’s a great price for a 7-day vacation, a first-class genealogy conference, OR trip to Mexico and Honduras – but you get all three in one package! You’ll also get one-on-one consultations with professional genealogists and opportunities to make new friends and meet fellow researchers from around the world.


As always we’ve got a terrific line-up of genealogy speakers and the following lecture titles have recently been announced:


- "They Came Together - They Stayed Together" by Hank Jones, FASG.

- "Genealogy Today: Where We've Been & Where We're Going" by Hank Jones,

- "A Genealogist In Hollywood" by Hank Jones, FASG.

- "Neglected History" by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak.

- "Cold Cases: Genealogists, Coroners and the FBI" by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak.

- "The Pension File of your Revolutionary War Veteran" by Lloyd Bockstruck.

- "The Wonderful World of Names" by Lloyd Bockstruck.

- "The Huguenots" by Lloyd Bockstruck.

- "One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools" by Dr. Stephen P. Morse.

- "One-Step Webpages: A Hodgepodge of Lesser-Known Gems" by Dr. Stephen P. Morse.

- "From DNA to Genetic Genealogy: Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask" by Dr. Stephen P. Morse.

- "Internet Sources for Military Genealogy" by Craig Scott, MA, CG.

- "Researching Your Civil War Ancestor" by Craig Scott, MA, CG.

- "Reasons For Not Serving" by Craig Scott, MA, CG.


All of those lectures are software-neutral but users of The Master Genealogist (TMG) will also find several lectures that focus on making the most of that software and its companion products.
