Advanced Google Tools for Genealogists
presented by
Francie Kennedy

† † Most of us barely scratch the surface of what Google can do. Looking things up with Google is only one of the many useful tools available to us! Have you made a family map showing migration routes and everywhere your families have lived, over time? Catalogued all of your books in a format you can access remotely from a book sale (so you donít wind up with three copies at home)? How often have you read a rare book about your ancestorís home town Ė that is every-word searchable? Have you found an image of a historic postcard of Main Street in that town to use as an illustration in your family history? This session will guide you toward finding many things Google can do beyond the basic search function we all use. There is a lot more within this site, beyond the simple home page!
