Travel back to your ancestral origins.


This is a full day tour for those of you who hope to find more infos about their family tree. I will provide a research contacting the municipal registry office of the city where your family is from (without this information I can't start the research). If there is the chance, I will also contact your relatives. We can visit the streets where your grandparents were born and where they grew up, or the church where they got married! On request I can try to bring you visit the graves of your ancestors. Most of the research depends on the informations you can provide.
It will be a trip back in time and a tour that will be fully customized for any of my guest. I will check your request and describe the kind of work as well as possible results that I think I can provide in your case and the cost of the tour, that on your needs can have a different price .

Itinerary

I will pick you up wherever you prefer and I will bring you to your ancestor village. On the way, if we will still have time, I'll also show you archaeological areas or natural reserves, depending on the guest choices. The research on your ancestors must start from Sicily and can start only if you provide me the name of the parents, place and date of birth. If place of birth is not Sicily I can't proceed with the research. I cannot find people who left with the boats from Sicily, unless they left some relatives in Sicily (for witch I also need name, date and place of birth).

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your Hotel

End location: I will leave you at your Hotel

Duration: 6 hours 30 min.

If we will take some extra time which doesn't depends on weather, traffic, time of year but only on your needs to stay longer in one place, I will provide an extra price for me and the driver.
