Scottish Ancestry Tour 2019

News for those who fancy a wee jolly to Scotland... :)

Scottish Ancestry Tour 2019

AncestryProGenealogists are excited to announce our newest Ancestry Tour in association with EF Go Ahead Tours.

The Scottish Ancestry Tour, running 19-29 October 2019, will cover Edinburgh, the Highlands and Glasgow, giving travellers the opportunity to explore their Scottish heritage and walk in the footsteps of their ancestors.

Under the guidance of AncestryProGenealogists expert genealogists, Kyle Betit and Kirsty Wilkinson, travellers will be able to research their family history in the major genealogical collections held at the National Records of Scotland, Highland Archive Centre and Glasgow Mitchell Library, as well as to visit several specialist libraries and archives. In addition, visits to museums and historic locations, including the Highland Folk Museum and Culloden Battlefield, will bring the past to life and enable travellers to gain an insight into their ancestors’ lives.

Each traveller will receive an AncestryDNA kit in advance of the tour which may highlight areas of Scotland where ancestors originated and reveal new cousins. A pre-trip family history review with an AncestryProGenealogists expert will enable participants to identify ancestral homelands and to get the most out of the tour. Travellers will also have the option, at an additional cost, to arrange personalised ancestral home visits to locations where specific ancestors originated and to explore the places they lived, worked and worshipped.
