Do you visit places your ancestors lived?

I’m sure I can’t be the only person who loves to visit the places their ancestors lived. Thanks to the census and other records it’s possible to get a good idea of the places people lived. On a few occasions my husband has driven me round to look at places although he always makes me get out of the car to take photographs!
