Researching at online websites (in conjunction with Legacy) was one of the top requests for hangout topics we got in our 2014 Planning Survey.*This month we are going to discuss how we use FamilySearch.org with Legacy* (we will let the dust settle on Ancestry.com's most recent changes and then schedule that hangout in the near future).   Do you use FamilySearch.org for your genealogy research? If not, why not? Let's talk a bit about search tips ...

The end. Well, we sailed to Florida from Cartagena but it's the end of the photo blog posts. #photos

+Jenna Mills Those little carts are train engines. There were two on each side in the front and at least one on each side in the back, maybe two. They don't actually pull the ship through, they keep it centered so it doesn't hit the walls. The ship's motor is on since it's moving under it's own power. 

I didn't notice noise from the engines but there was plenty of noise coming from the ships. I didn't even notice noise from the engines the next day when we went to Gatun by land but noise from the ships probably drown it out. 

Our ship held a little over 2,000 passengers plus crew. It is 105 ft. at it's widest and 867 ft. long. We were told we had two feet of clearance on each side. It was hard to tell that from the ship. Some of the cargo ships ahead of us didn't look like they had that much room.

I didn't expect Cartagena to be one of my favorite stops on this trip.

That's too bad. I enjoyed the Fortress tour. Didn't think I'd be able to walk all the way to the top but I did it. Neither of my friends attempted it.
