Hello GenTravelers! Happy 2019…(12 days into it)!
This year I hope to dedicate more time to this passion project (this blog about GenTraveling). It really does give me a boost to read about people’s GenTraveling adventures, to plan my own adventures and to research good tips and tricks on how to make traveling to ancestral hometowns successful. I declare that, on average, I’ll post about once a week this year!
I’ve been traveling – but sadly, not really GenTraveling. I recently captured the above photos of roots and branches on a trip to New Zealand and Australia (my ancestors are not from those areas, so we didn’t hit too many archives). So, even when I’m not specifically GenTraveling, I’m always thinking along those lines!
I also got thinking that a passion project should have a manifesto. Here is what I came up with:
I hope 2019 will bring many GenTraveling excursions – and not just excursions – many successful experiences in expanding my family tree, as well as getting to know more about the ancestors that are already on my tree! The same hope goes for all of you, (if you dig that sort of thing too! :o) GenTraveling: It’s the Real Deal Thrill!
