Take A Genealogy Cruise! Federation Of Genealogical Societies Offering 2015 Alaskan Cruise August 28, 2015 To September 4, 2015

Hi Everyone!

FGS LogoAs I was reviewing one of our recent journals I noticed that the back page had an ad for an upcoming genealogy cruise.

Genealogy cruises have become very popular over the recent years.  Some have been one week cruises, some longer.  Some have been to the Caribbean.  Some have been to Europe.

What caught my eye on this one is that it is a cruise to Alaska.  I don’t think I have seen that destination noted for a genealogy cruise.

The cruise is being sponsored by the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS).  It will take place from August 28, 2015 to September 4, 2015 sailing from Seattle, WA.  The cruise will take place on the Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas.

The following 4 noted genealogy speakers will be on the cruise:

  • Elizabeth Shown Mills, CG, CGL, FASG, FNGS, FUGA
  • D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS
  • David Rencher, AG, CG, FIGRS, FUGA
  • Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL

Conference registration opens April 1, 2015.

Further information about the conference rates, the cruise rates, the program scheduled times and other news can be obtained at:

Here is also the 1 page back cover I noticed when reviewing a genealogy journal:

Sounds like an interesting cruise to a destination  that is certainly for those with a taste for a somewhat cooler climate!
