ANCESTOR, DIRECT - a person from whom you are descended. A descendant is a person who is descended from an ancestor. Loosely used interchangably with relative.
DO NOT take original documents on your research trips. Make copies instead.
[Basic Genealogy]
Genealogy is the search for our ancestors. Family history is the study of the lives they led. Using the information from each area provides us with a true picture of our family.
