Rob and Kathy Brown are starting on the adventure of a lifetime. They sold their home in Orem, Utah, and on Friday they piled their five children, ages 10 years to 18 months, into a motor home hauling a 20-foot trailer and started a six-month trip throughout the United States. That's seven people, one motor home, 40 states and zero potty breaks.
Kathy Brown has been researching the family tree on Ancestry.com. The family plans to visit places around the country where their great-great-grandparents came from.
While looking for sponsors to help with the trip and finding a lot of genealogical information online, they shared their idea with Ancestry.com. The company was immediately sold. According to Matt Deighton representing Ancestry.com, the mission of the company is to help everyone discover, preserve and share family history. The company has even covered the family's motor home with pictures of the Browns' ancestors and information on their adventure and how to follow their story.

Comment: I have to wish the Browns the best of luck as I sit here writing this article in my motor home in an RV resort in Florida. I am sure the family will have an adventure they will long remember.
However, seven people, one motor home, and 40 states??? I wish them luck!
