Once you have a basic understanding of the process of researching your familyhistory, you will want to know where to find more information. Some of thatinformation is “hidden” on the internet.Google is one of the best tools available to find it, but getting millions of “hits”during a search is not helpful. This session will show ways to “dig out” theinformation that applies to your own specific family.Google can also help you find libraries and archives that contain information not on the internet. The key to using Google successfully for genealogy, is understanding how it works.
