Have you ever dreamt of following your roots to the land of your ancestors, discovering long-lost family secrets, and unraveling the fabric of your history that makes you YOU?
For the winner of this auction, not only will this dream come true, but you will be accompanied on each step of your journey by a professional photographer, who will create a photographic journal as you trace your roots through exploration and art across three countries of your choosing!
Your amazing experience will begin with a complimentary DNA test kit from My Heritage. Once the results of your DNA are received, the fun begins! First, you’ll select up to three countries of origin that pique your curiosity most (they do not need to be the countries that represent the largest percentage of your DNA).
Then, while a team of genealogists researches your family tree, a team of art historians will research the most influential artists of the era in which your ancestors inhabited each country AND acquire limited edition reproductions of their work for your private collection! So, as you explore Paris, Rome, or another exotic location, you can envision the streets, grottos and shops as they existed in your ancestors’ time through the eyes of Van Gogh, Michelangelo, and other great masters.
That’s right, the next phase of your experience will include business class airfare for two and lodging for 12 nights in your selected countries of origin, where you will receive complimentary tours of the world’s most famous museums, lose yourself in masterpieces created at the time your ancestors walked the very same streets on which you stand, and connect with your heritage in ways you never imagined. And you’ll be doing all of this with a professional photo journalist in tow!
This brings us to the culminating phase of your experience: the creation of a photographic journal of your travels, discoveries, and all of the precious memories in between. The series of photos will not just sit a book, however – they will be exhibited alongside your new limited edition art acquisitions for one evening at a private showing and reception in your honor at a local venue near you. What a wonderful way to celebrate your heritage with family and friends!
