Valmay Young, website and social media manager of FIBIS said of the research trip: 'Following in the footsteps of my ancestors and visiting the churches where they were baptised, married and buried was a truly unforgettable and moving experience for me and my family, as my parents and son both accompanied me on my pilgrimage.'
