I’ve been away for the last three weeks, some of which was spent on tracking down my ancestors and some of which was spent talking to living relatives and gathering more family history stories together.
While I was away my scheduled updates of this blog seemed to have gone awry. Here is one that should have gone out last weekend!
One of subscription sites that I use personally is TheGenealogist.co.uk and I see it has launched a brand new all-in-one search feature. This allows users to do a â€˜single searchâ€™ across the entire website, which is a valuable extra dimension in my opinion.
The all-in-one interface now also incorporates their â€˜keywordâ€™ search, and they are pretty excited about this being the first time that these two features have been brought together to aid family history research.
With this great feature you are now able to instantly display all the records for a particular ancestor, whilst filtering out all the other irrelevant results from the search.
The press release tells us that.. â€œNo other genealogical website currently produces such quick and relevant results for your ancestor search and has the flexibility to produce results for a number of different generations saving an enormous amount of time for researchers. Instead of offering search results that cast the net wide, like most genealogy websites, TheGenealogist segments the data down offering more accurate and relevant results – no more wasted time sifting through lots of irrelevant records to find the person you need.â€
The Genealogist claims Accurate and reliable results in a fraction of the time explaining that for the first time you are able to enter an ancestor’s name into a search along with an approximate year for their birth and the option of keywords that can then trace an ancestors life through the records, from birth to census, marriage and more.
What is more is that Address Lists are also included, thus allowing the family history researcher to view other residents and view any other potential family links.
Mark Bayley, Head of the Online Division at TheGenealogist, feels the new search facility is an exciting new development in the world of online research:
â€œCustomers will get a much deeper insight into their ancestors in a fraction of the time. Theyâ€™ll be able to find everything we know about someone almost instantly with a single linked master search.â€
â€œThis is a powerful tool not currently available elsewhere. TheGenealogist is all about user-friendly searches, not just records and this new feature further enhances what we offer. We aim to make searches as useful as possible, we have our unique keywords searches that can scan our records quickly and itâ€™s now quicker and easier than ever with our new All-In-One Search.â€
With its new search tool and using just the basic information, TheGenealogist, can narrow searches down to the specific and allow the researcher the ability to generate successful accurate results. Ideal for all professional and amateur family historians. To take a look go to TheGenealogist.co.uk
