In the film National Treasure 2, Nicolas Cage’s character said, “Everything I am is because of my ancestors.”
Now, was he looking at his family tree… or listening to some family stories?
When you say ‘family tree’, that’s Genealogy, tracing the history of your family. These are the hard, cold facts: names, birth and death dates, places, and events like marriage and divorces.
And then we ask: does Genealogy help us find those memorable family history stories? Legacy stories that delight us and our descendants years from now?
When we find interesting family history and collect those stories, do they lead us back to fill in a few more leaves on the family tree?
Back and forth - the science of Genealogy to the joy of family history stories. Then those stories send us back to Genealogy, and the circle continues.
So, where should you start: Genealogy… or family history?
