In our beginning class today we discussed a few techniques to get more from a Google search, here are two of my favorites.
The ~ included in a Google search will search for similar words to the keyword.
For example: poundstone ~genealogy
the above search will search genealogy, family, ancestry, family tree, genealogical, genealogical records, records, roots, surname, vital records. etc - all the words similar to genealogy.
- will exclude information
For example: poundstone ~genealogy -paula
the above will exclude Paula from the search
Try these techniques on your next Google search!
