The program offers:
- 100 topics in up to three streams – lots of choice
- 50 different sessions – choose those that suit you
- 11 Research Help Zone sessions for:
- one on one or small group sessions with an expert
- special interest groups (some will be be listed in advance others can be added on the cruise)
- a few special interest topics
- possibly some historical/genealogical shore tour options – see below
A wonderful opportunity to network and interact with all cruisers – genealogically and socially.
Program updated 28 January 2014
Special interest groups – based on research interests from a pre-cruise survey nearer the cruise, e.g. Kent, Italy, handwriting. These will be worked into the program later. But we are open to offers from any who wish to convene a discussion group on a topic of interest.
The Research Help Zone is for many the most valuable part of the program. To find out more click here to see Helen Smith’s blog about Research Help Zones and advice on how to prepare (it is the same at sea as it is at an Expo).
