Google for Genealogists
Much of the information and resources available through Google go unnoticed by the average researcher. This presentation will explain how Google components can be leveraged for better search results. Google allows you to access maps, books, journals, abstracts, patents, and much more — you may find just what is needed to make advances in your genealogy research.
