Searchy App

Family historians are hungry for information.  We look for it in,, Wikitree, and a number of other genealogy websites.  But I bet you didn't know that a LOT of great information can be found by simply "Googling".

I recently came across a statistic that states we use approximately 30% of the computer power we purchase. That means that we are grossly underutilizing our desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The main reason for this is that we just don't know about some of the things our technology can do for us, and we could spend a substantial amount of our time and energy trying to stay on top of all the new technology, apps, websites, and blogs that bring that information to the public's attention.  

I recently discovered a new resource called Searchy.  This is a cool site that features tons and tons of tips that help you make the most of Google.  It is organized by groups depending on what it is you are looking for and does a great job of helping you hone in on the information you are seeking.

Take a look.  It may be something you can use, and maybe not.  But you won't know if you don't at least spend a few minutes checking it out. Might as well make the best use of the most-used research tool out there!
