The Family History Road Trip!

 This week it's all about those family history road trips. Summer is the perfect time to get out on the open
road and take in those specials places that can bring insight to your family history stories.

Family history road trips come in all shapes and sizes.Your road trip might be a tour of a cemetery or an afternoon at the local archives. Maybe you spent a weekend touring an ancestral hometown or you took a summer vacation and explored the country of your ancestors.

Regardless of the size of your trip,  family history excursions can be incredible opportunities to advance your research and gather family history stories. A road can rejuvenate both the body and the mind.
