A "family tree" represents the personal relationship of child to parents branching back in time from an individual to all direct ancestors, not just those of the family surname. Also the tree branches down from each ancestor, descending through their children to their children's children. Along the way, marriages associate people from other families. After several generations, some descendants may marry back into another descending line of their ancestors.
A genealogy is deduced from documented evidence. Evidence includes family records, photographs, historical publications, official records, Federal Censuses, and much more. Such sources not only help establish the fact of the family relationships, but give hints as to the life and times of each person. Caution and circumspection are necessary in evaluating evidence, see Evidence Notes below. There will always be parts of the tree that cannot be fully justified by the available evidence.
Discovering the family tree is like a jigsaw puzzle, where some pieces are not cut correctly, some are missing, and some that fit are not actually from this puzzle. Each piece of evidence is a piece of this puzzle (or not). So the process is to find pieces that fit, but also to test other pieces so that you know they are not part of your puzzle! Another danger is that the pile you are looking in does not have the all pieces you need, giving the false impression that the pieces you do find should fit.
