WHAT DOES GENEALOGY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

genealogy

Genealogy

Genealogy, also known as family history, is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to obtain information about a family and to demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members. The results are often displayed in charts or written as narratives. The pursuit of family history and origins tends to be shaped by several motivations, including the desire to carve out a place for one's family in the larger historical picture, a sense of responsibility to preserve the past for future generations, and a sense of self-satisfaction in accurate storytelling.

Definition of genealogy in the English dictionary

Other definition of genealogy is the study of the evolutionary development of animals and plants from earlier forms. Genealogy is also a chart showing the relationships and descent of an individual, group, genes, etc.
