Monthly Meeting – Oct 7, 2021 – “Better Genealogy Searches on Google and YouTube” by Dayna Jacobs

A Google search can unearth hidden genealogy gems from all corners of the internet, but how many times do your searches turn up the same results? Over 85% of internet content is now in video form, and YouTube is the place to find much of it, but have you tapped into that resource for your genealogy research? We will explore different strategies for both Google and YouTube that will improve your odds for success as you search for your ancestors.
