With search engines, a part of our everyday lives, most of us have turned to Google at some stage in our family history research. It is so easy to type in a name or genealogy search query and discover all the fantastic resources the internet has to offer. However, Google search results can be unpredictable when it comes to research. Sometimes you have to trawl through the rubbish to find the real genealogy gems. You will learn handy Google tricks that will help you get the most from using a search engine for your family tree.
