Take a Genealogy Trip

With the increased interest in genealogy and family history, an increasing number of guided research trips oriented on discovering your roots are being offered by travel companies and genalogy professionals.

We are all familiar with trips to Salt Lake City to the LDS Family History Library and to the Allen County Library, but there are also trips designed to explore specific geographic areas. These can be a bit pricey, especially if air travel abroad is involved, but they may be just the thing to combine travel and research to break through a brick wall or to walk the ground of ancestral homes.

Here are some organizations that offer specialized genealogy tours:
>Ancestral Attic (Carp Lake, MI) specializes in Eastern Europe
>European Focus, Inc. (Sarasota, FL) specializes in Europe, especially Germany
>Scottish Ancestral Trail (Dumfriesshire, Scotland) specializes in Scotland
