August 2019 we hosted the Founders, Fishermen and Family History cruise on the ms Zaandam with Holland America Lines. The cruise left from Montreal and traveled to Boston while stopping in the following ports: Quebec, Charlottetown, Sydney, Halifax, and Bar Harbor, disembarking in Boston.
Some of the group spent a day touring NEHGS and others went on to visit Salem and other areas of Massachusetts.
While on the cruise we gathered nightly for a lecture and also spent our sea days learning about different technological databases that can help with our research and of course we learned about different record sets.
This genealogy cruise was hosted be Gena Philibert – Ortega, she was joined by David Allen Lambert (NEHGS – American Ancestors), Daniel Horowitz (MyHeritage) and Tami Osmer Mize. Check out the scrapbook I created on Forever about this cruise.
