Time is Running Out and So Are Research Spots for 2016's Tour

This is the last chance to sign up for the 2016 Genealogy Tour to Scotland next May. There are two spaces left and they will be gone by the time the Highland Games are over in July, so if traveling to Scotland to do your genealogy research is on your bucket list, don't wait to register or you may be too late. There are no regularly scheduled tours beyond 2016. A special tour is planned for 2017 for participants of previous tours to experience a second level of research in records around the country.

Just 2 Research Spaces Left for May 2016 Genealogy Research Tour to Scotland

Eleven months out and the 2016 Genealogy Research Tour to Scotland is nearing capacity. Only TWO research spaces remain.

As any family history researcher will tell you, there is great excitement when you find your ancestor in a document. Tangible verification of their existence. And there is a sense of wonder when you see their signature. It is almost as if  you could reach out and touch them. 

Multiply that by infinity when you walk the streets they walked, see the houses they lived in, the factories they worked in, the churches they worshiped in. Feel the deep and lasting connection to them as you stand at their gravesite. 

These moments provide a deep sense of affinity for your ancestors. A deep appreciation of their battles and struggles. A sense of pride as they overcame in order to carry on.

All of this culminates in an irreducible sense of belonging as you come to understand not only their story but also your own history. How you came to be.

If you are ready to experience a sense of being whole, connected, belonging to your Scottish ancestors, join us on our next Genealogy Tour in May 2016.

Only 2 research spaces remain, so book before you miss out on this life-changing experience.
