Geneology is some kind of detective work that can, beside from being very interesting, provide information to future generations like for example health problems in the bloodline, possible genetic disorders and so forth.
There are many interesting things to search for and find. It can be where your ancestors lived and died, occupations, religion, the place of burial, place and date of marriage, to validate family stories, to understand a namesake, and more.
Some people search for ancestors to find out if they are related to someone famous, if someone was involved in maybe a famous historical event, or perhaps to find and reconnect with living relatives.
