Genealogy v's Family History
Genealogy is the charting of a family's descent through a chronological record of births, marriage and deaths; in short it is the bones of your research. It consists of a record of names, dates, places and relationships through which one can compile a pedigree chart of a family tree.
In the process of your research you will amass a lot of other information.
This is the stuff of Family History, which will fill out the lives of the people you are researching, and the conditions under which they lived. This is what puts the flesh on the bones of your research. It changes your ancestors from a set of facts into real-life, interesting individuals.
