You have until April 14 to watch for free Legacy Family Tree’s webinar, Googling around with Google and other Technology, presented by Geoff Rasmussen.
No matter how often I attend a Google presentation, I learn something new. This time, I especially liked the part about the Customized Google Searches “tool” that eliminates the need to figure out where to put the quotation marks and other symbols when Googling an ancestor’s name. It creates the complex search terms for you. Tip: Less can be more. Sometimes too much information in your Customized Google Search provides zero results. When that is the case, remove some of the search terms.
Mr. Rasmussen also (finally) convinced me to set up Google Alerts (I have) and use a Google Calendar (I did that too). All in all, it was an excellent lesson.
