Ok – so it’s not “tomorrow”

I taught on Tuesday and Wednesday and didn’t have time to write. I didn’t forget, though. This is the third Google thing I found this week. (Remember Google is a company not just a search tool.)

What I found was a “Love it” (with apologies to Stone Cold Creamery but fewer calories) tool in Google. So – open your browser and go to Then Click on “more” and go all the way to the bottom and click on “even more.”

See – a new page with a heart next to the search bar. Now – this is the cool part – type in “genealogy” and click the heart; a whole page gets populated with genealogy “stuff.” Try different terms like “family history” (don’t forget to put quotes around phrases when you search) or “ancestry.”

What Google does is populate specific gadgets with these terms and lead you to places you may have never thought to look on in the Internet. The gray grid on the left shows you where you are on the page of gadgets.
Just in case genealogy isn't the only thing/person you love, try some other search terms. I even put my husband's name in just for fun!

Happy Hunting!
