voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm steve ember.

voice two:

and i'm shirley griffith. our subject this week is an area of study that interests millions of people -- genealogy, researching family history.

(music)

voice one:

people study their family history for different reasons. for some, genealogy is important to their religion. this is especially true for mormons.

genealogy is also important for membership in some historical or cultural organizations. these include the general society of mayflower descendents and the daughters of the american revolution. candidates for membership may be asked for evidence about when their families came to america.

other people who get involved in genealogy may want to confirm stories they heard about a family member. or they may just want to learn more about the strange-looking people in old family pictures.
