GENEALOGY CHAT, Saturday 23 Oct 2021
Please join us for our September Genealogy Chat on Zoom from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM.
Program: Will I get different search results using different search engines, or are they all the same?
Dawn Carlile will give us a comparison of several different search engines you can use to search on the internet including Google, Bing, Yahoo, Duck Duck Go, etc. Is there one that is better than the others for genealogy? Do they all work the same way or do they have different ways of searching using wildcards? Registration required - see the calendar listing.
