28 July – 7 August 2017 - a 10 night cruise to Papua New Guinea and islands

An exciting new cruise featuring a completely different kind of itinerary – to Papua and New Guinea and its islands, one of the emerging and exciting new cruise destinations.

- 4 days at sea – lots of time for our usual wide ranging conference
- 5 days in ports and/or around islands – great sightseeing and fascinating shore excursions

The conference program is headed by Dr Tom Lewis, one of Australia’s foremost Pacific war historians and authors, supported by other recognised experts. The program will have around 40 talks, mostly in a single stream.

A special WWII Pacific War stream. 2017 will be the 75th anniversary of the Pacific war coming to both Australia and New Guinea. 1942 was the year the Japanese attacked the Australian mainland and New Guinea including Rabaul and Milne Bay (places visited by this cruise). It was also the year of the Kokoda Trail and the Battle of the Coral Sea, the first time the Japanese were checked in their relentless southward advance. In addition to Australian forces almost 1 million American service personnel passed through Australia during World War II.

Announcing the 2016 Eastern Caribbean Genealogy Cruise

February 26 to March 5, 2017.


Gary and Diana Smith would like to invite you to join them on their 3rd annual genealogy cruise to the sunny Eastern Caribbean for a week of great fun and learning aboard Celebrity Silhouette. The cruise will take place February 26 to March 5, 2017. A Solstice Class ship, the Celebrity Silhouette encompasses all the amenities and grandeur of a 5 star resort hotel while sailing to some of the most interesting destinations in the Caribbean. Indulge in five course gourmet dining, marvel at spectacular nightly entertainment, and ashore, explore the uniqueness of each port-of-call.

Gary and Diana are internationally known professional genealogists who have also organized several genealogy cruises in the past. On the 2017 cruise, they will be joined Donna Moughty and by some fellow named Dick Eastman. Both Donna and Dick will be teaching throughout the cruise, and available for one-on-one consultations to address your individual genealogy questions. Topics such as technology, Internet, Ireland, Scandinavia, Britain, census records, family health, organizing, immigration, land and more than 20 hours of discussion and learning are proposed for the agenda. All the genealogy activities take place in private meeting rooms both in the morning and afternoon on the days at sea. We will have meeting rooms available each evening after dinner for those who wish to continue their genealogy discussions. Join Gary, Diana, Donna, and myself and all those who love genealogy and cruising as much as you!
