Interviewed for Genies Down Under podcast

On the recent Unlock the Past genealogy cruise in Australia I was interviewed by Maria Northcote for her regular monthly Genies Down Under podcast series (

The episode, very much focussed on genealogy cruising, is now live and available at - Maria's chat with me is about 26 minutes in.

Also featured in the one hour podcast are interviews with Alan Phillips of Unlock the Past, and fellow speakers and cruisers Jill Ball and Pauleen Cass, and Joy Averis.

Shownotes for the episode are also available at - the podcast series is also accessible via iTunes.

A huge thanks to Maria!

  1. It was fun wasn't it? Lovely pic of both ship and Opera House...missed that view.

  2. I took it after we disembarked, managed to get a few great snaps in Sydney that morning!
