Welcome to The Path of our Ancestors, a storytelling travel series!


Hi, my name is T.J. short for Turner Jack. I have been an expat kid for over ten years, living and travelling to various places throughout North America, Central America and presently Europe. I am fascinated by world history, and have recently been learning all I can about WW1 and WW2. I enjoy exploring abandoned buildings and battlefields in search of buried relics. I watch as many history documentaries and biographies that I can get my hands on. I have fun learning about different cultures, world foods and testing my skills at speaking a different language. Researching and building my family tree, making a connection between historical places and events, to our ancestors, there paths and life stories, is really amazing! Learning of their courage and strengths, what they had to overcome, makes me feel incredible proud of where I come from.


Following the path of our ancestors in France.


What is POA?


The Path of our Ancestors is a unique and informative storytelling travel series, with videos, photography, photo art and fun educational puzzles, connecting the path of our ancestors to historical places and events, culture and old world foods. I hope to link up with others and share how fun history can be, learning about our ancestors, and to become more aware of the importance of connecting ourselves with family. To encourage others to honour our ancestors by preserving traditions and knowledge, reflecting on their experiences and how far they travelled for a better life. I think it is important to learn how their lives and their deaths impacted how we came to be, and to be inspired to make something great of our lives! No matter what the challenge.
What better way to learn!

My Story

Most of my life I have struggled with acute anxieties. All that is normal day to day stuff for most kids, has been a massive challenge for me. Hanging out with friends or being in school away from home, my safe place, felt like hell on earth! With a heart condition I inherited from my dad, medications are not an option, and after years of trying everything possible to manage my anxieties to fit into the norm, my family took a huge risk and decided it was best for me that we live outside the box. Travelling and exploring our world to educate me, has become my lifeline to feeling somewhat normal. Whatever normal is. Even though daily life can still be a challenge, living outside that box has helped me overcome huge obstacles, and allowed me to enjoy life again. We started in Costa Rica where my passion for wildlife was the beginning of a better path for me.

                                      Volunteering at a sanctuary in Costa Rica


A few years after my dads passing I learnt about several of my ancestors that came from various parts of Europe. I have always had an interest in historical battles and war, but the older I get, the more my interests grow and world history becomes my focus. Then when my grandfather passed away, I wanted to know even more. Grandpa D was a huge history buff, and now that he and my dad are not here to share the cool stories with, I think its even more important to keep the connection of family and their part in history alive. The coolest thing for me is being able to share with others a piece they too might feel connected to, then seeing them smile and feel intrigued, and enjoying it too!

I know I am not the only one out there that feels the restrictions of the disadvantages anxieties inflict on you, and could possibly benefit from my travel series and what I have to share. My travel experiences, being an expat kid, and with an ongoing desire to see everything I can, my passion for world history, doing what I can to continue managing my anxieties, while trying to build a future that works for me, educating myself the only way I can, getting others involved as much as possible, makes The Path of our Ancestors a hopeful venture to accomplishing my dreams!


                               Visiting Chateau de Malmaison, the home of my distant cousin Napoleon Bonaparte. 


Family and friends that were a big part of my life slowly disappeared. They just didn't get me. Growing up without my dad and immediate family other than my mom, the idea of building a family tree was exciting. As my tree research grew, so did my interest in world history. It put an entirely new twist on my travels, and the destinations we chose. The pieces of information I learned, pushed me to dig deeper. Then I took a DNA test connecting me to hundreds of cousins, and invaluable information of where my ancestors came from, and what runs through my veins. This information is something that I would like to further explore, and hopefully where you could benefit too!

                                   Ancestors from Russia, the Ukraine, Ireland and Germany.


In my family tree there are many entrepreneurs that go back generations, so I guess you could say it runs in my blood. Travels and exploring are my freedom from the pain of my anxiety. Learning outside the box is still learning, and for me it is the only way possible. I hope my informative and educational stories and building them into a fun travel series, is something you want to become a part of. I encourage you to become a Patreon member, by joining a ranking membership, as my Patron, with The Path of our Ancestors. I know you won't be disappointed!


BECOMING MY PATRON!
Your membership rank will include access to an invaluable informative monthly travel video series, cool educational puzzles and even some amazing photo art items you can keep or give as gifts! (ranking dependent) You are FREE to cancel your membership at anytime!

With your supportive membership I would be able to focus with great excitement on creating my future, and hopefully a life long career, doing what I love, in an environment I am able, all while paying it forward for others who are also suffering from anxieties or similar disadvantages. Without hesitation I would be able to continue building, with assistance and professional support, my website www.thepathofourancestors.com and other social media platforms such as Twitter, Youtube, Periscope and Facebook. The Path of our Ancestors will be able to connect regularly on Periscope's Live feeds, where you can join me when I visit historical places and events.

I would be grateful for any kind of encouragement and support you can offer, whether it be with your interest with a Like, Follow or Share on social media, becoming an ongoing member here on Patreon, or by encouraging me with a one time supportive donation.


                     



If I was able to meet my financial goals...

I would be able to purchase a new computer, as mine is on its last leg, and a new professional camcorder that will be the key contributing factor for creating and loading a great deal more higher quality videos. It would make night filming of abandoned buildings, war bunkers, battlefields and my ghost hunts possible, giving you a wider range of cool videos to watch.

My online resources are also very important, and the annual expense for these memberships would be able to continue. I would also hope at some point, to offer searches for my Patrons, of their family members in the many archives and worldwide newspapers that are part of these resources I use in my own research.

I hope to expand my research by physically travelling to locations of our ancestors such as Belarus, Russia, the Ukraine, Ireland, Germany and Poland, to name a few. You could also benefit from the information I learn on these travels, that would connect you to your family.

My education is different than most kids, and there are expenses for it ongoing from the resources online for educational purposes, transportation, museums costs and paying for non public tours or having access to other informative tools. I have a thirst for knowledge and experiences, and with you as a Patron and the many extra opportunities it would offer, means I will in return have more historical and informative footage to share in my video storytelling series.

My graph below gives you a more detailed break down of where your generous and supportive membership funds will be delegated. With you as my monthly Patron, this venture will be giving me the opportunity to proceed with creating higher quality videos, art work and puzzles, and a unique travel series. Building as big a following as possible, adding supporters and advertisers, to spread the history stories and information of the path of our ancestors and their links to historical places and events.

A FINAL NOTE
The research I have done so far on my ancestors and learning about some of their amazing stories and family secrets, has been an incredible experience I hope to further explore and share with others. Linking me to cousins and famous distant relatives I never knew I had, helping me to know who I am, where I come from and why I am the way I am.

These educational travels exploring the path of our ancestors and learning as much as I can about our world and its history, helps me to manage the pain of my anxieties. Learning outside the box is still learning, and for me it is the only way possible. I know there are other kids and adults in my situation, that may have a variation of anxieties, or disadvantages that does not allow them to travel at this time. Maybe by sharing my videos, it will help them feel a part of something outside the small world anxiety puts you in. I know how much I have felt alone over the years, and at times still do, but I have learned that as I grow older, and with each and every experience, I find it easier to try new things. At times I have to take one step backwards but my confidence continues grow, where my fears temporarily subside, and I can continue to walk forward. Hopefully I will have an extended family of followers, that will become my army of supporters, helping me to build on that something great!
