Genealogy Basics
Genealogy is not just the study of cemetery records! Digging for lost ancestors takes you to strange places; in the course of your excavations you learn about history, geography, law, and psychology. Become fascinated by the times in which your ancestors lived, or discover that a talent of yours may have been passed down from your ancestors. You may even learn you are related to a historical figure! Genealogy doesn’t call for a lot of expensive equipment – just a notebook, a few pencils, a computer, and a willingness to dig for facts.
