Genealogy, also known as family history, is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to obtain information about a family and to demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members. Old Bristol Historical Society is slowly and methodically creating a database of names derived from the library items, archival materials, objects, and images/photographs that it collects and borrows.
