Genealogy Research

Heritage research can be a daunting task and quickly addictive for others. Whether you have already started your research or require assistance along the way, here is a checklist of how we work together to accomplish your research goals:

Gather what you know (and if you don’t have a lot of information that is OK too)

  1. Consider what you’d like to achieve
  2. Schedule a complimentary consultation
  3. Receive a proposal
  4. Decide to move forward
  5. Share the results with your family

We perform research ourselves and use a network of genealogists around the globe when needed. All records are not available online and we use our genealogy partners to research onsite in foreign/distant locations to delve deeper and retrieve any information available.

Heritage Travel: Where Ancestry Meets Adventure

Walking in your ancestors’ footsteps can be an enriching and rewarding experience. Planning ahead makes all the difference for a successful adventure. Heritage travel gives you a connection that can leave an imprint on your soul.  We’ll assist you with deciding where you want to travel, determining what you would like to accomplish, arranging local genealogists/tour guides/historians to enhance your experience and assistance with onsite research and/or possibly meeting distant relatives. We can arrange air travel, travel insurance, lodging (including villas), arrange private or group tours and provide travel concierge services onsite 24/7.  Heritage travel makes a great vacation whether solo, couple, or group.

Some items to consider when planning your travel through time:

  1. What is your ultimate goal?
  2. Would you like to actually perform onsite research while in the country/locale you are visiting?
  3. Are you interested in local cultural activities? (for example an authentic cooking lesson)
  4. Who will be traveling with you? Once you announce your trip, don’t be surprised if other family members want to join in!
  5. Would you like to meet current day relatives if that is a possibility? (not always a possibility
