The Rise of Ancestry Travel: A post about the latest travel trend.
Have you ever thought about traveling to the place where your family is from?
It's a centuries-old tradition, with people from all over the globe visiting the places of their ancestors. Now more than ever, it's easier thanks to the development of internet technology coupled with a growing interest in genealogy.
If you’ve had trouble planning a memorable vacation, worry no more! Some great places that come to mind for ancestry travelers are two countries - Italy and Greece!
Whether you're looking for a vacation or just want to learn more about your heritage, here are some tips on how to plan your trip!
The first step to planning an ancestral trip is identifying what part of the world your ancestors came from… you can do this, such as doing DNA testing, where you are provided information about your ancestry. Other sources are immigration records, census records, internet archives etc.
Second, try to reach out, if possible, through social media platforms to possible relatives. If you are not able to find family members, it’s ok too. You can always visit the destination and explore and see about your ancestry just by being there! Ancestry travel can be a really rewarding experience, especially when you have the opportunity to see the places where your ancestors lived and worked.
Finally, once you have this information, it’s important to speak to a travel expert such as our travel advisors. We can certainly plan your trip with hotels, transfers, tours, etc and we can have a private English-speaking guide who can take you to the place where you are from! Once your itinerary is planned out, then the countdown begins.
Ancestry travel has become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more people are interested in learning more about their heritage. The experience of traveling to a foreign country can be an eye-opening one, and it's often a great way to bond with other family members and make new friends.
So if you're interested in finding out about your own family history and discovering what part of Europe your ancestors might have come from, then you should definitely consider planning a trip to Greece or Italy soon!
You never know what kinds of surprises might be waiting for you there!
