Visiting an ancestral home or even visiting the village where an ancestor lived can be a very satisfying experience, even more satisfying can be standing face-to-face with a relative who shares common Czech ancestry but has been out of touch for a century.

Living relatives in the old country are an integral part of your family tree and they're usually eager to share details from your shared family history and to learn the fate of distant relatives who long ago left the ancestral homeland. These stories can easily be forgotten and lost as the older generations pass away.
