we bring your ancestral town to you

Virtual Ancestry Tours

Our virtual tours are tailored to your ancestry and heritage, offering a distinctive and unforgettable experience for you and your family to reconnect with your roots.

This is especially great for those who are unable to travel to Italy.

You can gather your entire family virtually around the TV, laptop, tablet, or even your mobile phone and share this exceptional and remarkable family experience.

What's a Virtual Ancestry Tour?

Our professional genealogist will travel to your ancestral town and provide you with a private Ancestry Tour, as if you were there with us. To fully capture the experience, a filmmaker will document the entire tour and send it to you after editing it.

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.
