Poll: Did you go on a ‘genea-journey’ this summer?

Our very own US genealogy adviser, Schelly Talalay Dardashti, coined a wonderful term: genea-journey.

What is a genea-journey?

A genea-journey could describe a journey to research your family history and discover new relatives and information about them, or it could be an actual physical trip to the places your ancestors lived.

Whether it is a journey confined to books, archives, online websites or family interviews, or a journey "home," the goal is the same: Learning more about your family.

The summer months are prime time for pursuing such hobbies, or going on vacations. Have you taken a genea-journey this summer? Or, are you now planning one for the future? Where has your genea-journey taken you in the past?

Let us know by answering the poll below.
