Back to your roots, Neuchâtel

"I contacted Nick in the hope that he may be able to help me look for evidence of my ancestors around Sauges in Neuchâtel.  I sent him a copy of my family tree research and he prepared a fantastic itinerary for a day. He must have spent some time carrying out further research prior to my arrival. We were picked up by Nick and driven to relevant locations where my ancestors lived and I was delighted when he had traced not only family homes but also showed me the vineyard that family had owned! Nick thoughtfully arranged lunch at a lovely location serving vegetarian food at our request and a visit to a local wine cave. It was very interesting discussing the local way of life, the history of the canton as well as useful driving tips. The finale was meeting a distant cousin who Nick had located which was a lovely end to a perfect day and more than I could have dreamed of."
