This week take a look at the following link on how to do basic Genealogy GOOGLE searches. You will need to do this from home since this is a Youtube video which we aren’t allowed to view at the center.  

Note:  If you can’t get the video to work in the browser you are using, try a different one like Chrome or Firefox.  I was able to view it in Internet Explorer, but I had to check “Show all Content” at the bottom of the page.

The google searches they show are

1. Try searching a website for one word or phrase, Example- site: familysearch.org nauvoo. This will search all of familysearch.org for the word Nauvoo.

2. Search for an ancestor using + and -.  Example:  “Aaron Underwood” +Florida.  (I tried this search and found something I had never seen before.) 

Challenge: Once you watch the video, try different Google Searches. I tried it and found information on one of my end of the line ancestors that gave me possible parents.  Let me know if you find something new.
