Who’s in your family tree?
Shake your family tree and watch the nuts fall! A genealogy chart (family tree) virtually represents family relationships throughout the generations. It is a way for people to track their ancestors and discover family history. Information such as who the red hair in the family came from or why the family name was changed can all be discovered by learning about genealogy.
Tracking down family members can be a difficult task. Finding one’s genealogy has been said to be like a never-ending game of hide and seek. No matter how many generations you trace yourself back, you will always have to look further for information that has been buried. There are many challenges that arise, including missing ancestors, incomplete birth and death records, family names changes and more.
