Today there is a widespread interest in genealogy. Some people consider it their hobby and for some it is a responsibility. While many individuals work on their own family history, others enlist the help of genealogy companies. These companies have professional genealogists who provide a beneficial service for those who would like to accomplish the work but are unable to do so themselves. Other hobbyist genealogists also turn to the services of a professional genealogist to assist in their work or pursue difficult searches. In many cases professional genealogists have specialties and can provide focused research for their clients. Professionals connected with genealogy companies also have the resources to accomplish more. For example, a US-based genealogy company can have extension offices or associates in other regions and countries where further work needs to be done. This is an advantage for those looking to complete family links that extend over continents. In the United States, it is not uncommon to find many individuals who can trace back their family to immigrants, hence requiring extensive search in other countries such as research on English genealogy in the United Kingdom.
Studying and discovering family history and lineages can be satisfying and promotes a healthy respect towards family and ancestors who have gone before. Without the opportunity to know them personally, doing genealogy is a great way to catch up and know family better in some level. There is also great pride in finding out a relation to someone of significance in history or someone with great character who has touched the lives of many others.
