Define Heritage Trip

heritage trip. A journey undertaken to visit locations associated with one's family history or ethnicity.

In context . . .

"Rondel Holder, who lives in New York and works as a content creator at Essence magazine, was curious about his ethnic background, so he took a home DNA test that he bought from Ancestry. “I always thought of myself as being from Brooklyn, with Grenadian and Jamaican roots,” he said.

But the test results told another story, revealing that much of his ethnicity could be traced to two African countries, Togo and Benin. Mr. Holder said he went online within days of getting the news and booked a trip to Africa for about $3,500.

When he got there, he said he was happy to meet some people his own age. “The locals I connected with were working millennials who liked to go out and have fun, like me,” he said.

Mr. Holder is among the growing number of travelers who take a heritage trip, as they are called, or at least consider one, based on results from at-home DNA tests."
