For most people Googling means searching a single word or a short phrase. But Google is FAR more than just a search engine. It's a toolbox. It's a worldwide map. It's a translator. A collaboration platform. Google can even search for you while you sleep!
Ever used Google Translate to decipher documents in foreign languages? Ever used Google Earth for your ancestor's town, village, or street? Searched the Google Books library? Scoured Google Images for photos connected with your forbears? Discover the range of amazing tools that can add depth and dimension to your research.
The real goal of family history research is to go beyond names and dates. To learn about the lives of our ancestors; their struggles, their accomplishments, and the places and times they lived in. Google is powerful, but do you know how to use that power effectively in your research.
