US Connections Destination Update and Virtual Fam Trip


We are delighted to invite tour operator members to our upcoming Destination Update and Virtual Fam Trip, hosted by successful Discover England Fund project US Connections.

Visitors are drawn to England’s fascinating history and heritage, key attractions, ancient buildings, and beautiful countryside – but it takes on a deeper level of meaning when there’s a more personal story to explore too.

Join us to reconnect with your history and sample part of the DEF Connections Ancestral Services experience. During the session, specialists from Ancestry ProGeneaologists ( will take us on a whirlwind journey of discovery, revealing the personal stories and connections from some of the audience members.

Hear updates from the ten English destinations that form the DEF Connections project and uncover some of the significant and historical connections England has to the USA and Canada from ancestry and migration to World War II. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask any questions directly to the team.

Shortly after the event, attendees will be sent a destination update handout along with a link to the US Connections Travel Trade Directory containing contact details of travel trade ready suppliers in each of the ten destinations.

So, who do you think you are? Join us to find out!
