Genealogical collections and family histories (Koleksi silsilah)

This record type broadly contains compiled genealogies, organized collections of lineage data, family histories, pedigrees, family and community genealogies, whether manuscript or published. These contain the results of previous research such as pedigree lineage information and may lead to the original sources of documentation. Often provide information from record types, areas, and time periods where we have not yet been able to acquire the original records.

Generally these works include names of individuals; dates and places of birth, marriage, and death; names of parents and children. Many include histories and illustrations of ancestors and ancestral homes. Community genealogies list families of a specific place. May provide source citations or copies of documents. Many are indexed. Most are found in private collections, libraries, archives, and other repositories. When using compiled genealogies remember the information is only as accurate as the compiler, and is subject to error. Generally, family histories are a reliable source but should always be verified with primary sources.
