F16B14 Why Study Genealogy?

Genealogy is currently one of the most popular pastimes or hobbies. Why are people so interested in their forebears? To seek a connection to a royal figure? To join a heritage society? To use their discoveries in collaboration with DNA analysis? To answer adoption questions? We will cover these topics, as well as the meaning of surnames, the use of on-line websites, the need for documentation of sources, and the migration patterns of our ancestors.

She will be joined by other members of the LLI common interest group the "Diggers" (a genealogy group) who will also share their expertise in and knowledge of the subject.
