Global Greeters

Could you use a friend who knows the area where your ancestor lived?

According to their website Global Greeters are volunteers that love their city so much that they want to show you their place, for free! Not as a guide, more like a newly met friend!

Greeters can show you special places that have a personal meaning to them. They can also show things visitors specifically ask for such as parks, the best shopping spots, architecture marvels or city specific hidden treasures.

Canada has Greeters in 10 locations, Quebec has the most and Ottawa is recently added. The UK has Greeters in only three locations.

Other countries with Greeters are: Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Chili, China, Croatia, Egypt, Finland, France, Gabon, Germany, Ghana, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Netherlands, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Togo, Ukraine, USA, Vietnam.
