Genealogy Day

Genealogy is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use oral traditions, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to obtain information about a family and to demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members.

I have dabbled in my genealogy over the past three decades from time to time.  Talking with your family members, grandparents, aunts and uncles are a good place to start and to gather interesting information. Second, third and beyond cousins also provide essential facts as well – and often missing data and pictures.

The internet has become a wonderful place to find information on your family.  US Colleges and Universities are getting grants to provide accurate information at cemeteries – something long overdue and very helpful. Sharing family tree information, census data, marriage, divorce, death, Social Security, land, and all sorts of other things are available.  And you can meet other folks who are looking for bits and pieces of information that might help both of you.
