Do you know what British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and former presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Richard Nixon and George W. Bush have in common aside from being notable leaders? Along with other distinguished figures, they come from the same lineage traced back through genealogy.
Genealogy is the study of family lineages and history. Many people are interested in working on their genealogy as a hobby or with active intent to preserve the past for future generations, to identify origins and seek out interesting family information, among many reasons. For members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is a responsibility taken seriously with the goal to identify deceased ancestors as far back and perform vicarious ordinances for them.
Aside from the satisfaction of getting the results of genealogical work, it also benefits those who do them in other ways. For one, discovering facts such as relation to remarkable people in history can be interesting and fun to cherish, not to mention boast of. Many American families find out that they have links to British genealogy, German genealogy or connections from anywhere around the world. Some people also feel a stronger affinity to family after doing family history work and a greater appreciation for those who have gone before them. Individuals and families who personally work on their genealogy also find that they not only reconnect with their kindred dead but with the living as well as they work together in mining information from living relatives and as they spend time together.
While many people personally work on their genealogy, professional genealogy research is also available. Professional genealogists provide their services to those who would like to do the work but are unable to do so for any reason and for those who need the extra help. There are times when personal research just comes to a dead end and this is when a genealogy professional can be of great help. Genealogy companies deliver by pooling the expertise of several researchers and having the resources to accomplish them. Missing information on ancestors from England and you can’t go on? Some genealogy companies have on-site researchers to do the work for you. By availing of specific research packages, you can get the answers you need to any genealogy concern. Professional genealogy services can also be used to obtain important historical records and conduct estate or missing heir research.
