8th Unlock the Past Cru...

I’ve written before about how excited I am about going on the 8th Unlock the Past cruise to the Baltic. With just a few days until I hop on a plane and head to England, that excitement hasn’t diminished one bit … in fact it’s getting super exciting. As I’ve...

South Australia’s...

May came and went. Rather quickly actually. And June is flying by, and hence this is a very belated round-up (or review) of the events and places I visited during South Australia’s History Month (aka the About Time: South Australia’s History Festival), back in May. As usual,...

8th Unlock the Past Cru...

The old saying goes “time flies when you’re having fun”, but I also say time flies when you’re busy. And unless you’re a kid, lets face it … time just flies!! I mean, does anyone really want to know that JUNE is only says away? How can it be,...

May is South Australia&...

May has arrived, and so my copy of the South Australian History Month program guide. This is the month that all South Australian history-lovers look forward to. It is a month-long history-fest. The “About Time: South Australia’s History Festival” as it is officially...

Congress 2015: Catch Up...

I was fortunate to be able attend the 14th Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry recently. I was just of the 500+ avid genealogists who made their way to the National Convention Centre in Canberra to attend this once-every-three-years event. It was fun. It was tiring. It was...

Congress 2015 – C...

With less than two weeks until the ‘14th Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry‘ conference (which is generally known as simply “Congress”), you might be forgiven for thinking that I wasn’t going to it, or didn’t know about it. But the reality...

Only Four Months Till U...

Genealogy and cruising are a perfect combination, so much so that it has become known as geneacrusing. Afterall you get to stay in lovely accommodation, have a genealogy conference onboard, and you visit amazing places along the way. And that’s without mentioning the great food,...

RootsTech – The P...

A huge attraction of going to any genie event for me is meeting the people. Catching up with friends that you see only occasionally, and making new ones along the way. And that’s exactly what I did again while I was at the RootsTech/FGS Conference this year. So here’s a photo...

RootsTech – Day 3...

Saturday was the last day of the RootsTech, which was Day 3 for many (and Day 4 if you had attended FGS as well) – either way, the days of talks and walking the Expo Hall (or in my exhibiting), followed by social events in the evening were starting to catch up with everyone....

RootsTech – Day 2...

Day 2 of RootsTech fell on Friday the 13th, but it certainly didn’t bring any bad luck to attendees at RootsTech. With a full day of talks that began at 8.00am and continued through until late afternoon, and the exhibit hall open from 10.00am until 7.00pm – today was the day...
