Rob and Kathy Brown came up with an idea more than a year ago, and their neighbors thought they were crazy ever since. After a lot of planning and research, the Browns sold their home, packed their kids into a motor home and started off around the country. They are traveling the US for 6-9 months homeschooling their 5 children (ages 18 months to 10 years) teaching them about their family history and how they fit into the American story.

When Rob told Ancestry about the journey they were taking, we asked if we could tag along. Now you can follow them in what they’ve dubbed as their Great Great Great Grand Adventure.

Nearly four months into the journey their motor home has broken down several times, they’ve met hundreds of great people and learned more about their family history than they thought possible. After all of the breakdowns, countless laundry mats and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Rob and Kathy are loving the family history adventure that is bringing their family closer together than ever before.

Follow the Browns as they take family history seriously by having a lot of fun. Visit to learn more about the Brown family and see what they’ve been learning this week.
