Searching on Google, Yahoo and Bing can bring up so many results that it can be overwhelming to decide which websites are worth viewing. It is hard enough to figure out how to find missing relatives and fill in blanks on the family tree.
If you find a few websites for your family search, there is an easier way to find information on those websites.
This is the technique I use on Google to search websites that could have useful information – keyword site: http://www.website.com.
So many websites have search engines that are complicated. Russian language websites can have search engines even harder to understand. It is so much easier and quicker to go through large Russian genealogy forums by using keyword site: http://www.website.com on Goggle.
This technique makes using search engines so much easier. Then I copy and paste all the results in Russian or Ukrainian into Google Translate.
