The Best Tools for Finding Information When Google Isn't Enough

Eric Ravenscraft of "LifeHacker" had a great post on 6 Jan about on-line search engines.  He discusses Wolfram, The Wayback Machine and Topsy, just to name a few.  He also gives some good advice on how to use resources like Google more effectively and how to mine the comments sections to determine the veracity of the answers you are finding.  These tips and tools lend themselves to any kind of research but can be very helpful for your genealogy searches.

Good all-around advice.  Click here to reach Eric's post.
