One of the great pleasures of family history is visiting where your ancestors lived. Millions of English, Scots, Welsh and Irish have gone to live in countries all over the world down the centuries. Closer to home, there are all those who migrated from one part of the United Kingdom to another.
We have conducted research for people with British ancestors from many parts of the world. The emigrants have included all sorts – an engineer from London, a carpenter from Somerset, a tailor from Edinburgh, a crofter from Sutherland, a soldier from Newry. Seeing the old house or farm where your forebears lived is a moving experience. The church where the family were baptised, married and buried is usually still there; as is the countryside that they would have seen every day. And there can be the thrill of meeting a cousin you did not know existed.
Our Homecoming package can include details about your ancestors, maps, a suggested itinerary and accompanied visit tailored to your precise requirements to ensure you get the greatest benefit from the trip.
