Terminology In Genealogy

As you research your family history, you will run across a wide variety of terms used many years ago and wonder what they mean. At the top of this page there is a tab called Terminology and there you will find definitions for old and archaic terms that were used in the past. This is by no means a complete list just some that I have complied and collected over 40 plus years of research.

The Terminology section contains definitions for:

  1. Basic Terminology
  2. Old Terminology
  3. Land and Legal Terminology
  4. Medical Terminology
I hope that you will find them interesting to read and of use, too.
