Family genealogy is one of the most popular and fastest growing hobbies in America today. People everywhere are becoming increasingly interested in their family histories. New genealogy societies are springing up and the Internet now hosts several genealogy news groups bristling with activity. Behind this sudden surge of interest in genealogy lies a conviction that one's family history is special and worth preserving.
