Historically, genealogy has been a very important field as family connections between nobility were crucial to the idea of inheritance and the passing down of titles and ruler ship. Genealogy is the study of a family’s lineage and ancestry. Genealogy covers everything from a family tree to when and how people lived almost a century ago. The word genealogy is derived from the Greek, and means the study of family history and descent. Usenet hosts a variety of newsgroups related to the topic of genealogy and extensive research by the newsgroup community has expanded genealogy research since 1995.

Complete details on how to access Genealogy and the groups that are included can be found on the Newsdemon.com Genealogy Newsgroups page.

Newsdemon.com has created this free access in a continuing effort to promote awareness of the values that Usenet has to offer.  By including free access to genealogy, it is the intention to promote awareness and value to the terrific resources the genealogy newsgroups in particular have to offer the online community.
