Subject: Travelling for family history
Dear Ziners,

I just read a great novel where the story is closely tied to the Cape Breton and Scottish heritage ("No Great Mischief" by MacLeod). My brother and sister-in-law recently visited Ireland and while there, saw my grandmother's name in the school enrollment book on Achill Island.

It got me thinking about travelling to seek out genealogical information or to see "the old country". Does this motivate you? Where have you been?
