Today, there are books being written on how to use search engines to aid in this type of research and so it may seem strange to suggest using multiple search engines. Recently, a new genealogical search engine was introduced called Mocavo which searches thousands of genealogical web sites with the focus on the words you have entered into the search. This fact alone shows how using multiple ways to search can be a benefit to the searcher.
There are a couple of publications currently available to aid genealogists as they use Google for research:
1) Google Your Family Tree: Unlocking the Hidden Power of Google by Daniel M. Lynch
2) Crash Course in Genealogy by David R. Dowell *
*There are many references within this book on using Google as an ancestral search engine. There are also many articles, blogs and other media created that review this search engines ability to aid ancestral research.
Some of the other search engines to consider when doing research because of the way their search engines perfom searches are:
- Dogpile.com (search aggregator)
Tomorrow we will discuss the new 'all in one' genealogical search engine Mocavo!
Comments and Suggestions are always welcomed!
