How to Search Google for
with the most popular
Internet Search Engine
Suggestions for finding
your family name:
(1) Type your surname and it will locate all the web pages that
have been indexed with your surname on it. Example: Foster
(2) Type your surname with "quotes" around two
words so that the result will bring back a more filtered
selection of web pages to look at. Example: "Foster genealogy"
or "Richard Foster"
(3) Some Search Engines do well by placing a + sign between
Foster + genealogy
(4) Try several two word searches to see what you can find
on your family. Type your surname and then a second word
using either the "quotes" or + sign. Example: Foster + family; Foster +
history; Foster + genealogy; Foster + GEDCOM; Foster + journal;
Foster + obituary or Foster + Virginia.
(5) Google is able
to simply find what you want by just typing it as you normally
would do. Example: Foster genealogy
(try this method first)
