Mega-Search ... an option for getting search results from just genealogical web sites

Reminder -- this is just a graphic representation of the page.  Click on the link below to actually dive in and research for your ancestors!

We often find ourselves with soooo many places to search when we are researching our ancestors.  It can be overwhelming.

Many Roads has created a so-called Mega-Search using Google’s technologies to search across Genealogy in Time’s Top 100 Sites for 2015.  There are two searches offered.  I suggest to first try the Top 100 search first.  If you get too many results or too many of the results are from subscription sites that you cannot access, you can always then use the Top “46” Genealogy Sites search.

I had some fun playing around with it.  And, after a day where I spent a lot of time doing internet searches, it was kind of nice to not see only genealogical results.  Though, for completeness, I do suggest doing some across the WWW searches, just in case something pops up that is not on what is traditionally considered a family history website.

Want to try out some other Genealogy Search Engines?  Check out the Search Engines page on Cyndi’s List.

Did you have any success?  What worked or didn’t work?  Which is your favorite Genealogy Search Engine?
