My Travel Story

The primary purpose of my pngoing travel is to meet my Facebook Family.  Most of my Facebook Friends have my same Surname, Theissen, or my Dad's family names Eckstein (Bohemia), Peterson and Johnson/Johansson (Sweden), or my Mother's family names, Jones, Williams, Hughes (Anglesey, Wales).

Many of my Facebook Family are already known to be related to me, or to others on my Friends list.  Others, we are still working on.  Through the Ancestry.com DNA Genealogy project, I have found additional living "cousins" for all of us to get to know!

I have worked on Family Trees for years, and then the "human migration" from one part of United Kingsom and Europe to another, and then to the United States.  Since 2009 I am adding the actual geography!  Some things just can't be done on paper, or though Messaging!

Many in my Facebook Family have expressed appreciation for what I do. Either they have too many demands in their lives to do genealogy, or they don't feel as confident about doing it as I am.  We now know that we're "cousins," we have met new "cousins," and wer have new appreciation for the homelands that our ancestors emigrated from.

I have extensive photo albums on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/brad.theissen

The destinations I have chosen are all areas where my Family has roots, and where I care to discover more. All to share with everyone involved.

  • Visit The Prague Petrin Tower

    Visit the Prague Petrin Tower
    Visit the Prague Petrin Tower. Since 1891, the Petrin Lookout Tower in Prague, has been a major tourist attraction. Built to resemble the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Petrin Tower has an observation deck with great views of the city of Prague. Getting to the top of the hill where the Petrin Tower sits, is via the Funicular Railway cablecar. Come along for this amazing adventure!
    I made this video, and I am sharing it with all of you.
