Traveling Through Your Family History

Imagine standing in the early morning mist of a small Irish town. Your gaze skims along the ruins of the once vast homestead. You unfold the paper from your pocket and compare what your eyes take in to the artist’s rendering. Yes, this is the place.

Your camera clicks away to capture the scene while your imagination drifts to days gone by. You can almost picture the family that lived here, your family, bustling about doing morning chores. You traveled so far and yet somehow, this feels like home. Perhaps in some ways, it is. This year while planning the next vacation, why not make it a deeply personal and richly rewarding experience? Bring genealogy research to life and take a travel through your family history.

Searching for Family Treasure

Begin your historical journey with a walk down memory lane and peruse scrapbooks, photo albums and the attic at grandma’s house. Often there is a world of discovery quite close to home. There are several websites that also cater to such explorations. Budding genealogists can visit court houses, libraries and museums for photos, and relevant documents including vital statistics, homestead records, wills and probate records. There are even records that reveal if a long lost relative’s past landed them in the county jail.

Relive Legends and Lore in your Ancestry

As the information is gathered, the stories take on color, come to life, and ignite a desire to travel, as if back in time, to discover a more personal connection to your ancestry. So often there are mysteries to unravel and quiet surprises just waiting to be rediscovered. Do not be surprised when your family legend takes you across the country or across the globe. Revel in the romance that is so personal and truly unique to you and yours.

Cherish Your History

Realize the satisfaction of standing before a monument, graveyard, house, or other foundation linking your past to your present. After time spent unraveling the details of your family’s chronicles, it touches the soul deeply to know an ancestor passed this very way. A story brought back to life by you, the descendant, keeps history alive and gives a slightly more whole sense to the self. What a profound connection.
