FreeFind and Google Site Search Engines
    This site has a huge genealogy database (gedcom) where individuals are linked to parents, siblings, etc. You can search that database by using one of the two main links ("surnames" and "individuals") at the top of this page. These two site-search engines (Google and FreeFind) will search the genealogy (gedcom) database, too, but not as efficiently as the indexes above, as they're not geared specifically to the genealogy program. These two site-search boxes for Google and FreeFind will also search the multitude of other pages such as pages with cemetery extractions, census or tax lists, guest book archives, and any of the over 2600 pages on this site. Be sure when using the Google search engine that you click the tab to search just "" or it will search the entire web.
