What is Genealogy?

Genealogy is the study of the descendants of families and persons from an ancestor or ancestors. This study is undertaken by many people out of interest in their personal and family origins. As a hobby it can become pleasantly (No really!) addictive, at least to the person concerned that is!

The study is also undertaken professionally, not just in order to provide a commercial service that can be used by people who are seeking help in researching their origins, but also for very serious legal and financial reasons, for example, where a person has died with out leaving a will and with no known family decendants.

Because of this there are accepted standards for doing genealogy "correctly and properly" - standards that we recommend you seek to learn and emulate.

How to Start your Genealogy

How You Begin your Genealogy / Family History:

Family history can be an extremely interesting and absorbing hobby. However, if not tackled in a methodical way, it can also become very frustrating and even expensive.

To avoid such pitfalls it is important to go through this time honoured list of preliminaries.

1) Note the names of your close family and draw a rough family tree, starting with yourself at the bottom. If you are only able to go back as far as your grandparents, you are doing alright, particularly if you can fill in most or all of the birth, marriage and death (BMD) dates.
