identify compound complex sentences

How are the sentences alike? How are they different?
1) In the skin at the tips of our fingers we see the trail of the wind; it shows us where the wind blew when our ancestors were created.
2) We see the trail of the wind, and it shows us many things.
I know that sentence 1 is a compound complex sentence but i dont know how to identify the clauses in it. For example, "it shows us" in sentence 1 is that an independent clause? and then would "where the wind..." be a dependent clause?
And are there any subordinate clauses?
