Tracing one's ancestry, known as genealogy, has become a popular activity in the U.S. In previous decades, it was somewhat difficult to conduct efficient research. Today, however, online resources help to make this task much easier and informative. It helps to compile an outline of what you already know so far and be further supplemented by interviewing family members about vital data and lives of relatives. All of this information can form a valuable base when you begin your hunt. Remember to stay as organized as possible, since genealogy tends to involve very large amounts of data, images, and files.
