Have you tried Mocavo?

Nancy's Tips

Today I recieved my daily dose of Dick Eastman's newsletter ( http://blog.eogn.com/).  His newsletter always has something of interest in the Genealogy world.  Today he told me about the web site Mocavo.  Here's what he said:

"Mocavo.com is a genealogy search engine that is available to you at no charge. It searches hundreds of thousands of genealogy web sites, looking for the words that you specify. Web sites searched include thousands of genealogy message boards, society web pages, genealogy pages uploaded by individuals, state historical societies, family societies, Find-A-Grave, the Internet Archive (mostly scanned genealogy books from the Allen County Public Library), the Library of Congress, several sites containing scanned images of old photographs, and tens of thousands of distinct sites sites that contain various transcribed records of genealogical interest."

I typically use http://www.google.com/ as my search engine, but it often brings up more hits then I can handle. 

I tried http://www.mocavo.com/ today and found that every hit was a genealogy hit!  Not bad when you're trying to work on 6 or 8 different family lines!

Try it today and let us know how you do!

  1. I tried Mocavo, and it is great. There are multiple sources, including message boards, and as Nancy pointed out, they all genealogical. I highly recommend Mocavo.com.
