Unlock the Past Scottish-Irish cruise

The Unlock the Past Scottish-Irish cruise from New Zealand to Australia is coming. What better way to holiday than to combine it with our 2nd History and Genealogy conference at sea. Visit seven New Zealand and three Australian cities/towns from 21 November to 5 December, plus some of the finest NZ coastal scenery while being pampered for 14 days and having access to a conference like you have never been to before. There are fantastic savings if you book now! Scotland and Ireland are special themes within a wide ranging general conference at sea. We have a superb team of eight main presenters who will offer around 100 topics in main presentations, special interest groups and at themed meal tables. For details see http://www.unlockthepast.com.au/events/history-and-genealogy-cruise-november-2011-scottish-irish-theme
