HARTFORD, Connecticut – Voyager’s World, a leading travel and tourism trade magazine published in Bangalore, India, for the premium travel market features in its current (November 16, 2012) edition in an exclusive, insightful interview with Tom Nocera, co-founder and Managing Partner of the Ancestral Travel Network.

Titled “Have You Traced Your Roots Yet?” the interview explains the powerful and almost universal appeal of ancestral travel: the journeys taken to gain a better understanding of who we are based on acquiring first-hand knowledge about the lives of our ancestors, the places and cultures from whence we came. Nocera also shares his vision of the Ancestral Travel Network’s role in helping people connect with their deep ancestral roots through a portal into the deep family history data compiled and fully sourced by the academic quality research conducted at the Family Forest® Project.

Nocera’s vision ventures beyond linking people to their deepest known roots and pointing the way to the specific global locations where their ancestors once lived. Through its free-to-access international Ancestral Travel Partners page, the Ancestral Travel Network has already introduced thousands of “roots travelers” to a variety of resources in many nations. Links are provided free of charge to reputable genealogy professionals the world over and to document translation service providers located in the places where your ancestors once called home.

Nocera shares his thoughts on the pent-up demand for international travel focused on visits to ancestral homelands and discusses many of the factors which currently influence this important niche within the travel and tourism industry.
