Overview

It seems simple to understand why history is important. There are countless times that history repeats itself. We are face with the same choices that we were just a handful of years ago. Did we learn from our mistakes or will we make the same ones over and over again? Whether you believe in a Higher Power or not, there is still the question of what could have happened to those that are in your past. After all, don’t you want to know who was in your family tree? Could you be the descendant of one of the Kings or Queens of England? Perhaps you have an ancestor that was a war hero in the Revolutionary War. Perhaps the past isn’t as pretty with ancestors that died in famines, illnesses or strife, only to save their children that you would eventually come from. The “what if” type questions are out there and people in general are curious about what it means for them. If you want to know what your chances of learning more about your past you have to give genealogy a chance. You have to try to learn more. The good news is that it’s quite possible for many people to learn more about those in their family trees. The quest starts with understanding the process of genealogy and then learning how to get started on your own journey to learn as much as you can about those that have come before you in your family tree. Genealogy is the study of family ancestry. It is the study and tracing of the family’s pedigrees.
During the process of genealogy, you will collect the names of your relatives, including those that are deceased and will then establish their relationship to each other. This will include exploring various levels of your family tree as well including primary and secondary family members. You will use both documentation and word of mouth to help you to develop your family tree. The goal is to ultimately build a family tree that includes all of your relatives as far back as you would like to take it, or at least as far as you can take it. Getting a family history of your family is a bit different. In genealogy, you technically only will get the names of your family members, creating a tree.
But, with a family history, you will take this one step farther by including information about each of those people. Learning more about the lives they lived is part of getting your family history. Sometimes, this can be done at the same time as creating a family tree, other times it is a bit more complex because of how difficult it can be to learn this information. The goal is to gather as much information about your ancestors as you can to better understand your family’s history in both public and private life.
