Special Edition



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 Western Caribbean while we learn about genealogical research methods, tools, and technologies from some of the most popular speakers and authorities in those fields.


We are proud to offer a first-class lineup of speakers and at least 11 hours of lectures on a wide variety of topics that are relevent to every family history researcher. Users of The Master Genealogist (TMG) (or other interested researchers) will have access to an additional 6 hours of instruction that is specific to that software.


Best of all, the conference will be conducted on a 7-night cruise which visits such exotic ports of call as Grand Cayman, Costa Maya (Mexico), Cozumel (Mexico), and Belize. 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, snorkling, 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? And at prices starting at just $700 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!
