Are you ready to shake the family tree and find out who you really are? This is your chance to trace your family’s heritage, and experience the culture of your ancestors.
Basically, they want to send you on a genealogy mission to trace your roots, traveling to the country of your ancestors while researching your family’s heritage, wherever that may be.
Let me tell you from personal experience, a trip like this is super fascinating and definitely memorable!
A few years ago I traveled to Ireland with my own family to follow in the footsteps of my grandmother who immigrated from a small Irish town across the ocean to the United States when she was only 17.
It was a magical experience, seeing where she grew up, and learning about a side of the family we didn’t know much about. The kind of trip I think everyone should attempt once in their lifetime.
Distance Is Only Relative
Whether you want to track down the rural village in Spain where your great uncle started his booming butter business, delve deeper into family legend of royal ties in 19th century Thailand, or find out more about the Irish clan behind the dusty family crest on your grandmother’s desk, they want to help you connect to your story.

What Are You Waiting For!
Like me, I’m sure your family has told you stories passed down from generation to generation. Stories about your heritage, culture, and ancestry.
The more we know about ourselves and our family’s past – the more our personal identity evolves.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the country of your ancestors, and dive deep into the history of how you became you.
You’ll learn things you never knew before, and will get a better feel for where you and your family came from.
The information can broaden the way you think about your identity, and will open your eyes to a whole new part of your personal story.
I hope you learn something new about your ancestry like I did. Good luck! ★
