Discover Your European Roots with JayWay Travel

Discover Your European Roots with JayWay Travel
With our map covering a large expanse of Europe, particularly areas that saw a lot of emigration to the US, we are no strangers to arranging tailor-made family heritage trips. Whether that involves setting up transfers to and arranging accommodation in or close to ancestral villages that you have already identified, or putting you in touch with a local genealogist who can help uncover some of your family history, our expert trip planners can make your journey to discover your roots smooth sailing.

Jewish Heritage

Most American Jews can trace their ancestry to the Jewish communities of Europe. With the help of guides who are experts in the Jewish history and their contacts in local Jewish communities, we can help you forge new connections with your family's old neighborhoods in places like Budapest, Vilnius, Lviv, and Krakow.

Expert genealogists

Over the years we've been operating, we have developed an extensive network of contacts with expert genealogists. While our own dedicated staff on the ground in Europe can help you with the basics of visiting an ancestral village or a spot of translation, if you have questions that can only be answered by trawling archives and making lots of calls, you need an experienced genealogist. We've worked with many over the years and you can be certain that you're in good hands. Many genealogists will also provide interpreting services and accompany you on a day trip to visit towns and villages, and their churches and graveyards, ensuring that you're able to communicate clearly with everyone you meet. How moving would it be to meet up with long-lost relatives and share stories? Our genealogist partners are on hand to make that happen.

Just starting out?

If you're just starting out in the process of looking into your family history and aren't considering a trip yet then the best approach is to start working with a genealogist. We can put you in touch with the right person to look after your case. When you know where you want to visit and when, we can put a trip plan with time dedicated to visiting key places.

Know where you want to go?

If you've already made a lot of progress and know where you want to go, but need help making those last connections and breaking the ice (and translating) when you visit places of family interest, we’ll be happy to put together a plan for you. While making arrangements, we’ll be sure to connect you to a genealogist who can take care of all the finer details for you.

Loved walking around the "old" cities or villages just taking in the sights and people. Amalfi was breath-taking! I loved the trip to Capri, especially because I was able to swim. JayWay Travel also arranged for us to visit the sites where Bob's parents were born and baptized--a highlight of the trip for him and our son. JayWay Travel can layout a great itinerary for you that gives you the right amount of time in each place, allows you to sample local highlights and cuisine and enjoy the friendliness of the areas you travel through.

JayWay Travel is the only way to go for European travel needs! We were so well cared for and were treated like friends. With the help of the genealogist, Igor and Marcin, we were able to visit the exact location in Warsaw where a great uncle of mine had lived. It was tremendous to stand on that street and feel a connection to my ancestors.
