    • Abstract:
      Three pathways by which genealogists come to know and symbolically represent their deceased ancestors are proposed. Descriptive, narrative, and experiential pathways contribute both to the construction of ancestors as symbolically real and to genealogists' cognitive, empathic, and affective ties with their creations. The analysis is based on data taken from Canadian genealogists' written answers to an open-ended survey question in 1994, and from face-to-face interviews conducted with Australian convict-descendant genealogists in 1999. The paper concludes with observations on the normative contexts of genealogy, on genealogists' participation in imaginal relations, and on the conditions of immanence, all requiring further research.
