Walk Where They Walked

When you visit a place either in person or virtually where your ancestors lived, it helps you feel connected to them.

Possible Activities
  • Visit places that your parents or grandparents lived: a home, a school, a church, a grave, etc.
Go Digital
  • If it’s not possible to go to a place nearby, then use Google Maps or Google Earth to view the places your ancestors lived.
  • Use the FamilySearch Family Tree app to see on a map where your ancestors lived. Click the More menu, and then click Map My Ancestors.
