What I believe to be the world's first genealogical wave took place a few days ago -- appropriately enough -- on a somewhat wave-tossed cruise ship. I just got back from the annual Wholly Genes cruise and had a blast -- and along with my co-conspirator, Dick Eastman, snagged footage of this genealogical first!
Many thanks to Bob Velke and the entire Wholly Genes gang, as well as my 350 fellow genies. One of the best aspects of genealogical cruising is the camaraderie, and this one was as good as it gets. If you've been thinking about taking your family history on the seven seas, but aren't sure what to expect, keep an eye on Roots Television for some upcoming videos -- including more terrific interviews by Dick Eastman!
