Unlock The Past History and Genealogy Cruise 2011 | Let's Go!

Hello fellow researchers!  It has been a very long time since I have dedicated any time to genealogy.  However this is going to be rectified soon :)

Tonight whilst scrolling thought my google reader (yes, I am a google fan)

I came across this article and thought WOW, what a way to get back into the research, with a nice big BANG and a HOLIDAY to boot!

I am keen, and would love to go for the quad share room with some fellow family members, also a great to get to know each other and share our knowledge, if you're interested please let me know!
