What is Genealogy.... ???

"The word genealogy comes from two Greek words, one meaning ‘race’ or ‘family,’ the other ‘theory’ or ‘science.’ Therefore, genealogy is the science of tracing your ancestry. Family history, stories about your ancestors, can help you research your genealogy, and your genealogy proves your family history."
-- Willard, Jim & Terry. Ancestors. New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1997:5. [929.1 W69AN]
