Genealogy is the study of families and tracing of their lineages and history. Studying one’s genealogy may be motivated by many reasons such as 1) in determining a family’s place in national history; 2) in preserving the family’s past for future generations; and 3) in contributing to the “storytelling” of the events that had passed so many years before.
