“Google Search – Family History Update Webinar”
Donald R. Snow
Categories: RT, IR
Internet search engines, and Google in particular, are very helpful for many things on your computer. For family history these include finding genealogy data, particular websites and databases, finding information and spelling of locations, searching for images, maps, and books, and translating text to and from many languages. And there are options when showing the results such as highlighting the search terms in the resulting websites. This class will discuss Google and its uses. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active Internet links, are on Don’s website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
