There are two legacy cruises. The first cruise starts in Oslo, Norway, goes via Le Havre Paris, Cherbourg France, Dublin , Liverpool on to Edinburgh and back to Oslo. The second cruise that John and Noreen did, starts in Oslo, goes to Aarhus in Denmark, Bergen Norway, Geiranger Fjord in Norway and back to Oslo.
Legacy sessions are held during the days at sea. Some of the topics covered were searching and tagging, keeping a clean database, mapping, key genealogical resources for Ireland and Scotland and British Estate Records. There was Legacy for beginners, Genviewer, Genmatcher and Gencatelogue as well as finding your elusive ancestor.
This was not only an enjoyable cruise but they also learnt a great deal about genealogy and Legacy in particular.
Bob Saunders, our chairman, then showed us a short movie he had made, called “The Cocaine and Heroin Saga”. This was based on common medications that, in the past, had contained the above mentioned substances. The movie was colourful and the captions amusing. Bob plans to make a short movie called “What is your link” that could be run continuously at Hobby X.
