That’s where our special West Travel Club Ancestry Travel event with genealogy experts TimeTrackers comes in.
With limited opportunities for overseas travel, there’s never been a better time to research your family history now — before walking in the footsteps of your ancestors later.
But where to start? That’s where our special West Travel Club Ancestry Travel event with genealogy experts TimeTrackers comes in. Over the course of a single morning, at our West Travel Club Ancestry Travel event with genealogy experts Dr Lesley Silvester and Mike Murray, we will provide you with the essential tools to:
Research your family history: tackling the genealogical heavy lifting you can do at home to trace your ancestry, such as building your family tree, DNA testing, accessing online records effectively, and more.
Prepare for overseas research: visiting record centres overseas, joining local family history societies and booking and attending events for when you’re there.
Walk in your ancestors’ footsteps: boning up on the rich history of the places you want to visit, including geography, local history, family occupations, the reasons for a family moving from one place to another, and more.
Plan your trip: essential information on heritage travel, genealogy cruises, themed escorted tours, planning for big events and exhibitions and COVID insurance, which will allow you to book with confidence.
