How-to Genealogy: Google tip

leave a comment »

When searching with Google, you can exclude certain sites that insist on advertising within the content of their pages, like ancestry.com and wikitree.com. To get rid of those results and cut down on the number of hits by several hundred to several thousand, use a search including this:

-"ancestry.com"

or

-"wikitree.com"

You will get better results and see more potentially relevant info, too.
