Genealogy

Genealogy (from Greek: γενεαλογία genealogia from γενεά genea, "generation" and λόγος ', "knowledge"), 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. The results are often displayed in charts or written as narratives.

Scientists Trace Ancient Connection between Amazonians and Australians

Pictured is one of Brazi's Surui indigenous people. The latest genetic analyses back up skeletal studies suggesting that some groups of indigenous peoples in the Amazon in Brazil share a common ancestor with indigenous Australians and New Guineans. The find also hints that there were not one but two groups who migrated across these continents to give rise to the first "Native Americans."
