Why Genealogy?

Why Genealogy?

Genealogy is said to be the third (some say the second) largest hobby in the country. Just ask the librarians. They will tell you that their shelves are bursting with genealogy books. The available computers are in continual use with those seeking clues on their lineages. The fascination is hard to describe. Some enjoy “putting the pieces of the puzzle together.” Some love history.

Parenting a Young Adult

Parenting a Young Adult

Children grow up whether you're ready for it or not. They begin to make choices and decisions—and even have relationships—that you know nothing about. In other words, they begin to build lives that are separate from their parents. And they seem to start the process when you're not looking. While you're still relating to the traumas of teendom, they're quietly making the shift to adulthood.

Genealogy: The Evolution of the Census

Everyone Has a Name in 1850

The 1850 census was the first to require the name and age of everyone in the household. Its value to genealogists increased dramatically as a result. A dwelling number and family number was assigned to each listing in the order of visitation. Questions included name, age, sex, “color,” occupation, value of real estate, birthplace, whether married within the year, whether attended school within the year, and whether they could read or write (if over the age of 20).

Preparing Yourself for Childbirth: How Do You Know You're in Labor?

Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This

I almost worried myself out of having my doctor with me for my first delivery. I started having minor contractions in the evening and got all excited. The minor contractions were far apart, so when I called my doctor he jokingly said not to worry and to call him when I was really in labor. He told me later that he never expected me to take him seriously, but that's just what I did.

Obituaries and Genealogy

Page 2

Lineage Lessons

Some of the “best” obituaries are those published by religious societies. A fellow church-goer who knew the deceased would write what we as genealogists love—notices giving the whole family and obscure details that we wouldn't find elsewhere. Church obituaries are not always in the published religious newspaper; some are actually in the church's minutes. Determine the denomination, and do some investigating on the Internet for existing records.

What's in a Name

The majority of European surnames or family names come from geographical locations or terms, occupations, relationships, or an individual's unique characteristics or physical appearance.

After the Normans had dominated England for several decades, William decided to document the population he had come to control. From this early census report came the Domesday Book, which is one of the earliest records we have of names and naming trends.
