How to Search

The Genealogy Search Engine works the same as Google.

Start by entering the name of your ancestor in quotes, as in:

"John Smith"

Also try searching by last name first, as in:

"Smith John"

The search engine is not case sensitive, meaning that the two searches below are equivalents:

"john smith"

"John Smith"

This will be enough to get you started. If you want to learn more, we have written many genealogy articles on how to perform searches for your ancestors. Below are a couple of the most popular articles:
