Google Tools for Genealogy

Most genealogists are only using 10 percent or less of the resources behind Google when it comes to research. Learn about the other 90 percent and how these Google components can be leveraged for better search results. Google is more than just a search engine—it is a wealth of information much of which goes unnoticed by the average genealogist. Besides search, Google allows you to access maps, books, journals, abstracts, patents, and much more. These components may be what is needed to make advances in your genealogy research.
