Virtual Ancestry Tours
The ever-evolving and unprecedented COVID-19 situation poses extreme challenges for the travel and tourism industry. Many of our clients have postponed their trip to Italy and the long-awaited visit to their ancestral town.
While we can still continue working on genealogy projects for our clients, we are aware that traveling to Italy is not possible right now.
However, all is not lost. We are committed to continuing to share our love for genealogy and we are happy to launch "Virtual Ancestry Tours": a brand-new service to allow you to experience your ancestral town virtually.
What's a Virtual Ancestry Tour?
We will go to your ancestral town and we will run a private Ancestry Tour, as if you were there with us. We will film the entire tour - by using professional filmmaking equipment - and we will send it to you.
We will be your eyes and ears. We'll visit the town and walk the same paths your ancestors walked, we'll show you the locations where your family lived and worshiped, we'll visit the city hall and show you the civil records, introduce you to local history and traditions, talk to historians, and much more.
If any living relatives will be located - and if you're interested in finding them -we can arrange a video phone call for you to meet them.
Why taking a Virtual Ancestry Tour?
If you've ever wanted to see your ancestral town, now is your chance!
Gift seniors and your loved ones with a unique experience, from the comfort of their own homes. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your family, have a sense of being there, and allow you to feel like you've "got away from it all" during such challenging times.
If you can't come to your ancestral town, we'll bring a bit of your ancestral town to you!
Tracing Ancestry and searching records. We will conduct thorough genealogy research before the Virtual Tour. Besides the Virtual Tour, you will receive detailed genealogy reports and family charts.
Researching Descendants. We can perform descendants' research by identifying people who descended from a particular individual. If living relatives will be located we can get in touch with them and make all the necessary arrangements for you to “virtually” meet them.
Virtual tour in your ancestors’ village. Your English-speaking guide will be running a private Ancestry Tour that will be entirely focused on facts, places, and people linked to your family history. Your guide will be interacting with locals during the tour, every conversation in Italian will be translated or subtitled into English.
Editing process. The entire tour will be filmed and then edited through an accurate editing process. We will be assembling, cutting, refining, and translating raw video footage to deliver you with a professional final product. You will receive the video in different formats compatible with different devices.
Our Virtual Tours are available in most of the Italian regions, except the islands, all year long.
