WHAT IS GENEALOGY? Part One

Updated: Mar 7


Genealogy is so very many things, especially to different people. However, for those who may just beginning their journey or are curious to learn more about this field, I will provide the definitions as given by Merriam-Webster:


"1 : an account of the descent of a person, family, or group from an ancestor or from older forms.

2 : regular descent of a person, family, or group of organisms from a progenitor (see progenitor sense 1) or older form : pedigree.

3 : the study of family ancestral lines.

4: an account of the origin and historical development of something" [1]
