Great google tips

My name is Jacqui….and I’m a facebook addict.

A lot of people don’t like facebook, and sometimes I can understand why.  I like to think I’m a ‘careful’ facebooker, although I have been known to get up on my soapbox from time to time about things I am passionate about.

I’m a member of many facebook groups and pages.  Strangely, most of them revolve around genealogy, history and DNA.  I get a lot of information and inspiration from facebook.

Yesterday, I came across a post from Family History Daily called The One Google Search Trick Every Genealogist Should Know, and of course it piqued my curiosity.

I would consider myself to be a fairly experienced google user, but hey you never know.  I found the article very interesting, it didn’t actually teach me anything new, but it did remind me of a few tricks I hadn’t used for a while.

It did remind me, however, of a great story I often tell people about the absolute best thing I ever found on google in regard to my own family history.  Want to know more… well watch out for my blog tomorrow and I’ll fill you in.  The image on this page is a hint.

If you’d like to know more tricks about using google in your family history research, click on the link to The One Google Search Trick Every Genealogist Should Know.  Australian genealogist, Helen Smith has also  written a great book called Google: The Genealogists’ Friend which I highly recommend.
