Out of curiosity and interest in life of former times people start genealogical inquiries. They want to know nearly everything about the men and women of their own ancestral line. If possible they take old postcards or photographs to get an impression of the past. Another way might be to use old parish registers. Besides that they travel to villages or areas that meant home to their people long, long times ago. As you can see: there are different possibilities to learn and understand even about historical connections which are of significant means to present and future days.
Genealogy is a very old kind of research. Old Egyptian Pharao es derived their claim to power from divine extraction for example. In Europe genealogy developed in the early Middle Ages when people started to write down important events of live in parish registers. And today it´s your turn to pore over dusty yellowed registers or records trying to find out where your roots are and to find out something about your ancestor. This is the very special moment when the „virus“ of genealogical research has got you! I hope my homepage will help you to get more informations how to start your personal inquiries.
