Abstract NoteTHE POPULARITY OF GENEALOGY HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY IN THE last decade, thanks in large measure to the internet, which has expedited access to a wide and still expanding range of infor- mation. Rootsweb.com and Genealogy.com are two of the world’s most frequently visited websites. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints operates familysearch.org, perhaps the most comprehensive ge- nealogical database in the world. The site, which receives more than eight million hits per day, includes a database that now includes one billion names (Kilborn 1, 24). To date, however, little research has been performed on why indi- viduals embark on genealogical research. This paper is a first step in that direction. I use surveys built on open-ended questions and diaries completed by a group of genealogical researchers to develop a narrative that reveals how researchers assign meaning to the information and individuals they discover through their work.
