I am looking forward to seeing many of my friends and fellow genies on this cruise and also to meeting and sharing information with the cruisers and speakers.  What a great line up of experts and amazing family historians amassed in the one place - on the high seas cruising the coastline of southern Australia in summer...how great is that!

Make sure you read the useful posts on the official blogger sites and be prepared to make the most of the trip...

Bon voyage

Images of the nurse, idealised under the gaze of patients, doctors and community, are widespread in Australian culture and history. This exhibition uses a collection of these images to show how the nurse has been portrayed over time. The images, collected from covers of published books from Australia and overseas, from individual nurses, nursing associations and archives, reflect social and community customs within the times in which they emerged. The display will include copies of books showing how widely the nurse was used in adult and children’s literature throughout the ages. Visitors will also be able to view archival film from the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘50s revealing the often difficult working and living conditions of women in bush nursing, district nursing and midwifery.
The exhibition will remain in place for several weeks and may be viewed by the public on Tuesdays or by appointment.
Transport: Buses along Parramatta Road to Mallett Street. Limited street parking on Mallett Street and surrounding areas.

4th Unlock the Past Cruise 2014

Join me on the 4th Unlock the Past Genealogy Cruise on 4th February 2014:


 ** MEDIA RELEASE**

Unlock the Past Cruises (international) launched

Adelaide, South Australia, 25 June 2013 - Unlock the Past announces Unlock the Past Cruises, an international program of history and genealogy cruises. This expanded cruise commitment follows on from the success of the first three Unlock the Past cruises, high interest in the fourth in February 2014 and a proposed mid 2015 cruise from the UK/Europe to the Baltic. Now there is more choice:

• more cruises to choose from - two to four a year

• more and varied itineraries - anywhere in the world, wherever there is enough interest

• more price levels to suit different budgets - starting from under $1000

• more varied programs - some full conference programs with many presenters, others much smaller

• some conference focused, others more destination/itinerary focused

 

The fourth cruise in February 2014 is booking strongly. Further cruises under consideration include:

• a British Isles discovery cruise in mid 2014

• a smaller regional cruise from an Australian port or Auckland - Sydney late 2014 or early 2015

• a major Baltic cruise from UK/Europe mid 2015

• a transatlantic cruise November 2015

• an Australia - New Zealand cruise early 2016

 

Unlock the Past cruises combine relaxing cruises with world class history & genealogy conferences. All major conference cruises feature an international team of presenters and a program with international appeal. Shorter cruises will also have leading presenters. Some cruises are more conference focused. Others more on the destination and places visited.

What a fantastic and wonderful experience it has been. Great speakers and a good variety of topics. I now know that I am on the right track with my research. I was travelling solo yet felt I was part of a warm and friendly group. Thank you. - Lauretta Nobes, 3rd cruise

Thank you … for your wonderful work in organising this cruise – we are now addicted to Cruising with Genealogy … you did a fantastic job … Congratulations. - Malcolm & Hazel Ford, 3rd cruise
