Do you mean "Genealogy"?  That is gathering family tree info from many sources?

The answer is yes.  In addition to doing my own family research I've been active in the Genealogy Club of Osceola County here in Central Florida.  I'm just finishing a 2 year term as Secretary of the Club after which I'll return to my former position as Membership Chairman.

Genealogy is interesting but, if limited to just one word of advice to all the young Realtors out there, it would be start early to gather information from the elders in your family.  Too soon they will be gone and precious information will be lost forever.

Genoalogy is the art of making a sandwich with Genoa salami.

OK, kidding, but  wondered what it was, lol.  Genealogy is on my to do list, but I have not done it.

You can go down to you local county courthouse and they will have all your family history.

We do some genealogy, but have been lazy about it lately.  It like Active Rain can become addictive!

I've never done it with my family, but I've heard some great stories from my relatives. My wife, on the other hand, has already put together a book of her genealogy.

I LOVE genealogy.  I have found out that at least four of my great great grandfathers survived the civil war.  And lucky for me that they did!!  Since I discovered this family history I have begun reading a lot more about the Civil War.  On my last trip to PA I visited 3 cemeteries and took a lot of gravestone photos. 

Take a look at findagrave.com.  It is really fascinating.  You can create memorial pages for family, and you can leave messages and flowers too.  So far I've contributed 88 memorial pages.
