One of the many troubles with such generation ships is that by the time your people get anywhere, they won't be your people anymore. Their culture would be entirely different after millenia in space.
In the novel Voyage to Yesterday (James Hogan), instead of having a generation ship, or freezing people for protracted time periods, what you do is send genetic material only.
And in the case of VOYAGE TO YESTERDAY an entirely new culture was the intention. While I love much of Hogan's work, this novel was not one of his best.
