ONLINE SEARCH TECHNIQUES

The internet can be a useful source of records and information connected with family history research. There are a number of useful sites available and knowing which to use and how to use them effectively can be confusing.

Which sites to use can depend on a number of factors, a brief overview of the popular sites are shown below. They are not comprehensive site descriptions as space is limited but a visit to the sites mentioned will reveal more information.

Trying to find specific records can sometimes seem impossible but by using the screenshot examples in this section knowing how to search for a birth record or locating a missing family in the census is explained. The examples given are based on actual searches and demonstrate how researchers found the results they needed to continue with their trees. A screenshot guide to search options for the Familysearch, A2A and The National Archives websites are also included.
