What is Genealogy?

Genealogy is the study of families in genetic and historical context. It is the study of communities, in which kinship networks weave the fabric of economic, political, and social life. It is the study of family structures and the changing roles of men, women, and children in diverse cultures. It is biography, reconstructing each human life across place and time. Genealogy is the story of who we are and how we came to be, as individuals and societies. (Copyright Board for Certification of Genealogists.

Genealogy can be as simple as obtaining a copy of a birth record or as complex as proving a lineage back to the 17th century across six states; as diverse as searching for lost heirs, researching Native American heritage, preserving historical documents and photographs, developing software programs, or managing collections in local libraries.
