Family is important to us. And, just as important to us is family history.
Merriam-Webster’s Kids Definition of heritage: the traditions, achievements, and beliefs that are part of the history of a group of people.
An individual’s unique, inherited sense of family identity can also be defined as heritage. Your values, culture, and traditions handed down by previous generations means so much in identifying who you are.
We should all connect with our family’s heritage. This week we are announcing our new series on “Uncovering Family Heritage.”
Journey with us to learn a little bit more about your heritage.
Have you ever wondered where you come from? Or, even more intriguing, have you wanted to go there?
Imagine walking the same steps as your great-great-grandparents. How would it feel to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of your family’s ancestral home? Uncover stories in your family tree?
As travel has been on pause, it seems more important today than ever to learn, to experience, and to explore the places your ancestors did.
We would love to connect you with your family’s heritage, and we are excited to announce that we have partnered with leading tour artisans to help you uncover your family story on a one-of-a-kind heritage tour. Discover your family’s story with a group or individually on a carefully curated trip with a professional genealogist or local expert.
We will create a unique and personal travel experience for you. Your journey will be focused on capturing some of the most meaningful moments in your family’s past so that you will be able to experience their stories.
Your heritage journey will bring your family history to life. Here’s what our research package can include:
- Pre-trip research with an expert genealogist;
- Specially designed itinerary focused on your goals;
- On-tour help from local experts, private guides, and a professional genealogist.
Heritage travel allows you to experience the places and activities that authentically represent your past stories and people. No matter where your travels take you, you are sure to meet some of the friendliest people along the way.
Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing our Heritage Journeys with you. Our hope is they will inspire you to discover and appreciate your roots.
