unlock the hidden power of Google
  Pennylbb | Aug 27, 2016 |
As the Internet's most popular search engine, Google has firmly established itself as an indispensable tool for billinos of people world wide. During the past decarde, genealogy and family history research have experienced unprecendented growth due in large part to the electonic availability of family records via the Internet. This book explains how to use the many powerful capabilities contained within Google to jumpstart a family history search - and does so in simple, easy-to-understand language.

This book is dedicated to all my ancestors — Irish, Italian, and American—but especially to my maternal grandmother, Louise Ditoto Lombardo (1911 - 1991). I often think about how much she would have enjoyed the Internet and the many places she could have visited and things she could have learned, all without leaving the comfort of her favorite chair.

Also to my daughters, Hannah and Eliza, who have never known a world without the Internet. It's difficult to imagine the technology that will be commonplace when they are my age, but I can only hope that they will continue to use it to research, record, and share our family history with their children.

Book description
One to two inch margins at the top, bottom and outer edge of every page (for note-taking) add to the size, weight and price. Many pages consist of little more than screen-shots. A number of lined pages are included for more notes. One chapter consists of how to do reverse telephone number look-ups, VIN look-ups, track UPS and FedEx deliveries and how to find movies playing in your neighborhood.
