Every year Travel Buddy and I take a road trip.
We visit family and friends, frequent places of historic significance, and always spend time on genealogy research.
This year we are traveling to Scotland. We will be there for several weeks, visiting folks, checking out the historic sites, and once again, doing some genealogy research. Just in the last few years we have learned a great deal about what areas some of our people came from, and as most were from the 1600s and 1700s, we have a ways to go climbing back through the years.
I am still in the process of working through the hours of research needed before we go, but it will be complete by the time it needs to be. By the time you read this, we will be on our way. Regardless of what we find (and you may expect plenty of posts on the subject) we will wholeheartedly enjoy the experience of simply being where our ancestors were themselves, once upon a time.
And sometimes that is not only enough; it is plenty.
