Genealogy Directory

“Distinguished ancestors shed a powerful light on their descendants, and forbid
the concealment either of their merits
or of their demerits.”

~ Gaius Sallustius Crispus

Genealogy is the study of family history. By tracing the lineage of the male or female lines of a family, often both, to collect a family tree. It’s a fascinating subject that often springs surprises on the unwary but can also provide familiarity and comfort to those in the now.

There are two distinct areas of genealogy. The amateur who traces their own family tree and the professional who does it for a living or for academic benefit.

Both areas use the same scientific and historical techniques to build a picture and trace the origins of families through time.
