Practical Archivist Bibliogen - Généalogie & bibliographie généalogie ! GENEALOGY FRANCE recherches sur la généalogie, l'histoire des noms de famille USGenWeb's Darke County, Ohio, Genealogy Google Genealogy Style Google is the search engine of choice for most genealogists I know, due to its ability to return relevant search results for genealogy and surname queries and its huge index. Google is much more than just a tool for finding Web sites, however, and most people surfing for information on their ancestors barely scratch the surface of its full potential. If you know what you are doing, you can use Google to search within Web sites, locate photos of your ancestors, bring back dead sites, and track down missing relatives. Begin with the Basics - Google automatically assumes an implied AND between each of your search terms. - Google is case insensitive, with the exception of the search operators AND and OR. - Google will return results that contain all of your search terms, but will give higher priority to the earlier terms in your query. Search With a Focus - Use around any two word or greater phrase to find results where the words appear together exactly as you have entered them.
