Genealogy

About

genealogy |ˌjēnēˈäləjē; -ˈal-|

noun ( pl. -gies)


     A line of descent traced continuously from an ancestor - combing through

     the birth records and genealogies.

     The study and tracing of lines of descent or development.

Did you know that if you go back 10 generations, you would have 2046 ancestors, 11 generations yields 4094 and does not include aunts, uncles and cousins!

Rather an overwhelming number of people to find, but an absolutely fascinating journey to embark upon, the destination, a rewarding mixture of the confirmation of the known and surprise at the unknown.

Genealogy is not just copious lists of names and dates, but an opportunity to discover and record your family stories and maybe, compile your own family history which can be passed on to future generations.

People have always ventured to ever challenging destinations for one reason or another, whether it be the need to find sustenance and shelter, or economic considerations, persecution or war.  The dislocation from one's homeland can create a need in contemporary society, many of whom have either emigrated or are the descendants of immigrants, to re-engage with their past and ask the question "Where do I come from and how did I get here"?
