Azorean Roots tour is about your origins. Emigration in the Azores has always been very significant. Starting in the 19th century, most of these emigrants were going to the United States of America or to Canada. This was when American Whale ships started to touch our islands. Since then, that we have a strong cultural connection to North America. On the other side, many Americans and Canadians have their origins in the Azores. However they’ve naturally lost their cultural connection to Portugal has generations passed. But now they are curious about their relatives who left the Azores and went for a new life in North America.
Azorean Roots is a special and personalised tour to back track those origins. Customers share with us information about their ancestors: names, birth dates, or birth places, letters, etc. Any clue that will allow us to make some research and ultimately find a house, a birth certificate, or only help them understand how their azorean ancestors lived and what made them leave.
