Artikel dengan kalimat present perfect continuous tense
If you type genealogy in a search engine, you can find about 90 million hits. If you type family history, you will get about 50 million hits. The percentage of the U.S. population interested in family
history has been increasing steadily. This increase probably has to do with the ease of searching on the Internet.

The number of genealogy Websites has been growing accordingly as people ask themselves: Where does my family come from? How long has my family been in the U.S.? Why did they come here How did they come here? What kind of people were they? 

Genealogy is a lifelong hobby for many. The average family historian has been doing genealogy for 14 years, according to a 2001 study. Most family historians are over 40. Cyndi Howells, from Washington State, quit her job in 1992 and has been working on her family history ever since. She has created a Web site called Cyndi’s List to help others with their search. Her Web site has over 260,000 resources. Since its start in 1992, her Web site has had millions of visitors. Every day it gets about 15,000 visitors. Over the years, she has added many new links and deleted old ones.

Although the Internet has made research easier for amateur genealogists, it is only the beginning for serious family historians. Researchers still need to go to courthouses and libraries to find public records, such as land deeds,4 obituaries,5 wedding notices, and tax records. Another good source of information is the U.S. Census. Early census records are not complete, but since the mid-1800s, the U.S. Census has been keeping detailed records of family members, their ages, occupations, and places of birth.

Are you interested in knowing more about your ancestors and their stories, their country or countries, and how you fit into the history of your family? Maybe genealogy is a good hobby for you.
