The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.Google is a wonderful invention for genealogists and all other Internet users. The world's most popular search engine is capable of finding specialized information about most anything imaginable. However, many users do not know how to use Google's most powerful search tools.
Many of us only know how to enter a query into Google's Search Box.
Such a search can find all sorts of information, often overwhelming you with too many "hits."
For instance, a newsletter reader recently asked about past articles I have written on French-Canadian genealogy. She had gone to www.Google.com and entered a search for "French-Canadian genealogy," only to be overwhelmed with more than one million "hits." Clearly, there has to be a better way. In fact, I will describe two ways: one is a bit difficult to remember, but the other is super simple. I will describe the more difficult method first as it provides background knowledge. Once you understand the difficult method, the simple method will make more sense.
