I have written before (at http://goo.gl/fhAm8 and at http://goo.gl/V1H00) about Mocavo, a genealogy search engine. In fact, at last weekend's annual conference of the Guild of One-Name Studies, I was impressed when several Guild members described the successes they have had with Mocavo. It is especially effective when trying to find genealogy information about families whose surnames are also common English words, such as Towne, Ford, or similar names.
Now Mocavo has had a significant upgrade, as described in this announcement from the company:
Mocavo.com™ (http://www.mocavo.com), the world’s largest free search engine geared toward genealogists, announced the addition of thousands of new sites today. The new content added to Mocavo.com includes more than 3,000 genealogy blogs and thousands of sites submitted by users over the past month, including some new content for Irish and UK researchers. A very small sampling of the sites now searchable on Mocavo.com:
• DearMyrtle: http://blog.dearmyrtle.com
• Genea-Musings: http://www.geneamusings.com
• GeneaBloggers (plus thousands of sites in its network): http://www.geneabloggers.com
