I have written before about Mocavo (see http://goo.gl/qJCLo for a list of my earlier articles about Mocavo). I am enthused about this search engine. Mocavo's searches are limited only to genealogy sites. In addition, it has some specialized software that is better at picking out surnames than the other search engines. If you haven't yet tried Mocavo.com to find ancestors, I'd suggest you do so soon.
Now Mocavo has duplicated the technology to make a U.K.-specific genealogy search engine. www.mocavo.co.uk went live earlier today and the brief chance I had to play with it shows that it works well at finding references to English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh ancestors on the Internet.
The following announcement was written by Mocavo.com:
Our ancestors are like needles in a global-sized haystack. Many of us have zeroed in on what area of the globe our needles happen to lie, so why should we be required to search the whole thing? The Mocavo team has decided it’s time this proverbial haystack got sectioned off.
Today we’re thrilled to launch Mocavo.co.uk - a United Kingdom version of Mocavo that will search websites, blogs, records and content specifically from, or discussing, English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh decent.
While Mocavo.com searches sites and blogs from around the world, and will continue to do so, Mocavo.co.uk will focus specifically on the United Kingdom, giving those who wish to narrow their search to that region the ability to do just that.
So if you descend from UK families, be sure to check out our newest addition to the Mocavo search family. As always, we look forward to your feedback, which helps make our services that much better for your research. You can let us know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook page. Cheers!
