GenTraveling in the UK

Hello GenTravelers! Question for y’all:  What is the largest group of GenTravelers you’ve been traveling with? Last year I went GenTraveling with my mom, five sisters, two brothers-in-law and my husband (10 of us) and I thought that was a good sized group!  BUT, today’s featured story is about 46 – YES, 46! cousins from the U.S. who traveled back to their ancestral UK home of Northumberland!

In September of 2017, 46 American descendants of the Ogle family went GenTraveling.  All were members of the Ogle/Ogles Family Association of America (OOFA). While they were there, they presented Northumberland College with a wooden plaque that honored the Ogle family and helped restore a historic pond that was originally part of their ancestors’ estate. The pond was renamed Ogle Pond. You can check out their Association’s website which has more information and photos HERE.

Are you a member of a family association? Perhaps you could suggest a massive GenTraveling trip to your ancestral home!
