Genealogy is the study of family ancestries and histories of families, and is something that anybody can do. If you want to find out more about your family, just follow these simple steps.

 

First, go to your parents or grandparents to find out all that you can about your ancestors, or people that lived long before you did. Even when you don't think that you are going to like the stories that you'll more than likely end up hearing, stay to listen anyway. Even if you don't like the stories that you hear, you will be able to tell them to someone else. Then you can ask to look at photographs of your ancestors.

 

When you have learned all you can from your relatives, you can go to familysearch.org and search for your family members there. Then, you can create a free account. After that, you can do so many things.

 

One thing you can do is indexing. Indexing is typing what others wrote on paper. A copy of the paper goes to your computer, and you can look at it and type what it says. You can also search your family. If you type in some one's name, where and when they were born, and when they died. Then, click the "search" button and results will pop up for the person you are looking for.

 

Overall, if you want to find out your family history, follow these simple ideas, and learn about your ancestors.
