For those of you planning a voyage across the Atlantic to discover the ancestral homeland, the following from Judith Chetrit may be of interest:
I'm a French radio journalist based in Paris. I'm currently producing a radio documentary for Swiss public radio show "Détours" (the radio is called RTS) on genealogy tourism, Québécois coming to France to further their research on their ancestors.
I'm looking for people/families visiting France (Normandy and Poitou are the most common regions) in the upcoming weeks/months.
We suggest contacting Ms. Chetrit even if you are not from Quebec, as your story could be interesting to he. She may be reached at: judith (dot) chetrit ( at) gmail (dot) com.
This could be a good way to advertise your search and to discover some cousins!
