Dolphins, Whales and Icebergs, Oh My!

For eons now, a trip to Alaska has been on my bucket list. And next year, I will get to check that one off! 


Gena Philibert-Ortega is running a genealogy cruise out of Seattle in August 2020 that is a one week trip up the Gulf of Alaska, returning through the Inside Passage. This will take in not just the probability of dolphins, whales and icebergs but also glacial lakes and fjords. Day excursions will help me learn more about the history and heritage of Alaska - the goldrush days and the Indigenous peoples. 

All this shared with fellow genealogy researchers where we will hear talks, share stories and offer advice on our brick walls.

LAST SPACE FOR EDINBURGH 2020


There is ONE space left for each of the Edinburgh tours in 2020. Through some shuffling, a space opened up in the May 2020 tour. And there is still one space left for the September 2020 tour.

Each Edinburgh tour is timed to precede one of the regional tours that are being offered in 2020. May is ahead of the Orkney Tour and Sept is ahead of the Scottish Borders Tour.

I have found in the past that people appreciate being able to research in two different places while only needing to fly once.

As always, the spaces will fill on a first come first serve basis.
