Alias Definitions

I have a pretty simple question about defining aliases. There are couple of commands that I would like to setup an alias for, and I know that I can define one immediately, but whenever I shutdown that particular shell, the aliases are no longer there.

I believe that these files are stored in the .bashrc file (I'm using just gnome term), but I can't seem to find this file. I have searched for it with no luck. A more straightforward approach to the question:

When I type 'alias' it displays the current aliases defined for the shell. Where is the file that stores that information?

I have searched the threads and found nothing as simple and exact as this, so I apologize if I am wasting anybody's time, but this is my first post.
Any help would be appreciated.

For Slackware, this is probably going to be your best source of info on that topic. Here's the entire search I pulled if that particular thread doesn't help:
