Addressing the explosive growth in ancestral travel, this
compelling narrative combines intriguing tales of discovery
with tips on how to begin your own explorations. Actor and
award-winning travel writer Andrew McCarthy’s featured story
recounts his recent quest to uncover his family’s Irish
history, while twenty-five other prominent writers tell
their own heartfelt stories of connection.
Spanning the globe, these stories offer personal takes on
journeying home, whether the authors are actively seeking
long-lost relatives, meeting up with seldom-seen family
members, or perhaps just visiting the old country to get a
feel for their roots. Sidebars and a hefty resource section
provide tips and recommendations on how to go about your own
research, and a foreword by the Genographic Project’s
Spencer Wells sets the scene.
Stunning images, along with family heirlooms, old photos,
recipes, and more, round out this unique take on the
genealogical research craze.
