22 Genealogy Quotes

Genealogy is an account of the descent of a person, family, or group from an ancestor or from older forms. Genealogy means descent from an original form or progenitor, lineage or ancestry. The term “genealogy” is used in two ways. By one definition, it is the search for family history. The second way the term can be used is to describe the descendants of a specific ancestor. Genealogy is one of the most popular hobbies in the United States and a billion-dollar industry. Genealogy is what actually goes into tracking down ancestors—let alone putting information about them into any kind of context. This is a collection of 22 Genealogy Quotes and Sayings.
