Genealogy (also known as family history) is the study of ancestry or family origin. It includes the identification, collection, and organization of information about individuals, families, and ancestries. By charting family relations over time, genealogists can use genealogical records to identify, ancestries, track immigration trends, and trace family histories. It often involves researching historical documents such as birth, marriage, and death records, as well as census data. In addition, genealogy can be used to uncover lost relatives and uncover family secrets. It is an important tool for preserving family memories and for understanding our cultural heritage.
