My genealogical tours provide those people who live outside of Ukraine with an opportunity to visit places where their ancestors lived, meet living relatives or look for relatives’ graves at cemeteries, speak to local people in ancestral villages in Ukraine, breath the same air and see the same sky as their relatives did years ago.
Lviv Ecotour can arrange for a professional artist to make a custom painting of a town or a specific site or object in Western Ukraine.
I can help in developing an itinerary for a genealogical tour, or will follow your plan, to visit family in Ukraine, look for places of worship, family graves, locate family homes and other places of ancestral history in the areas of Galicia, Bukovina and Volhynia.
I provide a knowledgeable English speaking guide and driver on your tour to Ukraine to help in communication with relatives, local people and sources of family information, such as archives, local government and church priests.
The car, interpreter, guidance and assistance are included in the tour. I speak English, Ukrainian and Polish languages.
Each tour is individual and depends on your interests and location of your ancestral town. I can help with finding hotel accommodation for trips lasting over several days. The tours also offer an opportunity to visit historic sites and tourist attractions in the area.
Custom Paintings of Ancestral Towns and Sites for Sale
Lviv Ecotour can create and mail to you a hand-made professional painting of your ancestral house, village, natural object or a specific site of your choice located in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. This can be done as part of Lviv Ecotour’s Genealogy Research, or as a separate service.
The painting will be done by a professional artist who is a graduate of Lviv Academy or Arts. The artist can create the painting fully on site, or will create a sketch to be completed in a studio, or will paint from a photo. A range of painting techniques and canvas sizes are available depending on your choice. Other options, such as framing, etc. can be discussed. We also make paintings from customer’s photos, or at the time of customer’s visit to Ukraine on a Genealogical Tour. The price of a painting will be determined by the type of technique, materials, and format used, as well as the distance to the original object from Lviv and shipment method.
