'''Genealogy''' is the study and tracing of
[[family ]] [[pedigree chart|pedigrees ]]. This involves the collection of the names of relatives, both living and deceased, and establishing the relationships among them based on primary, secondary and/or circumstantial evidence or documentation, thus building up a cohesive [[family tree ]]. Genealogy (often misspelled "geneology") is often also referred to as '''family history''', although these terms may be used distinctly: the former being the basic study of who is related to whom; the latter involving more "fleshing out" of the lives and personal histories of the individuals involved.
