Oh, the Places You’ll Go When You Get Out of Your Armchair

Sometimes the only way to move past a brick wall is to hit the road and travel to the home country and ancestral village of your ancestor. There are just some things you can’t do from behind a computer. In this lecture, we will look at how a family history trip can get you up close and personal with your ancestor. We will look at how to walk in your ancestor’s footsteps, how to find the back door to your ancestor’s community so you can get a real sense of their lives. From preplanning to packing, apps and websites, tour companies, guides and going it alone, we will give you the tools you need to plan your own “Who Do You Think You Are Experience?”
