Many families history often includes emigration; people that to avoid war, persecutions or simply poverty have decided to make their fortune away from their home.
You must have often questioned yourself what did the places where your ancestors lived looked like; what would be the view from the window of their home? And what would they have become if they remained living at their place of origin? I’m sure some of you still must be keeping a few objects, an old picture, some old certificate and a few fragmented pieces of information.

When years ago I have read the book “You Can’t Have Wings If You Don’t Have Roots” I decided to reorganise my family tree and great things happened. I was amazed by the strength and the power that a person regains by reconnecting with his own roots.
Testimonials of them who have tried
The best possible introduction to our homeland.
From the greeting at the dock when we arrived, the staff was warm, friendly and personable.
Beginning with a tour of the island hitting each of the towns and explaining the significance of each, stopping by an old cemetery where he had learned our great grandfather was interred. He was given what family information we gathered and was able to not only show us the street (via) our grandmother grew up on, but took us to the church she was baptized in. Ultimately, arranging a meeting with distant cousins and acted as our interpreter.
His company offers a variety of activities to meet everyone’s needs. In addition to the island tour and helping us find family we had booked a lovely boat tour around the island led by his equally friendly brother Emmanuel. We toured around the entire island stopping at points of interest, to swim a couple of times including into the blue grotto. Mid day we stopped for a light, local tasty lunch of a tomato salad and fresh crusty bread that he made for us on the boat as we walked around San Angelo and fed fishes to the ducks.
Additionally, the opportunity to cook with a local family which happens to be his parents. They welcomed us as if we were the cousins from America. Guiding us in cooking a number of tasty dishes. We all sat down to eat. The typical Italian Sunday dinner surrounded by family. We left feeling more stuffed than a Thanksgiving turkey. Everything delicious.
I am strongly recommending to any of my friends that consider a trip to Italy to include Ischia and some of the various services offered by Foraday, they and you won’t be disappointed.
