Discover Your Roots Tour to Western Ukraine
From Friday June 5-Monday June 22, 2009
The Toronto Ukrainian Genealogical Group (TUGG) invites you to a “Discover Your Roots” tour of Western Ukraine.
The tour will cover Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil, Kyiv and possibly Chernivtsi if the numbers wishing to visit it are sufficient. Unfortunately, the Chernivtsi leg of the 2007 Tour had to be cancelled due to an insufficient response.You will be spending a number of days in each location both as researchers and as tourists.
You will visit the archives which hold information on your ancestors. You can also make side trips to their villages where you can walk in their footsteps.
Travel in Ukraine is a must. Most tourist organizations offer you transport between the various attractions and cities but you can also make up a sort of do-it-yourself tour if you are feeling a bit brave. Whatever you choose, make sure that you make the most out of your time in Ukraine.
This tour is designed to provide the perfect mix of both sightseeing and dedicated research time at various archives.
Here, you can take yourself off from the normal tourist trails and discover your own unique connection to Ukraine. Visit the towns and villages where your ancestors lived, the churches which they worshipped in and the fields and hills in which they walked. You will definitely feel that you are stepping back to the time of your ancestors.
Bring your past into the present and gain a fascinating insight into the lives of your ancestors. This is not only a trip of a lifetime, but a trip of lifetimes!
