FREE DOWNLOAD FRIDAYS: Google Alerts for Genealogy Cheat Sheet

Are you STILL searching for the same genealogy info on Google each month to find new stuff? Learn how to leverage the power of Google Alerts for Genealogy!

FREE Cheat Sheet – Google Alerts for Genealogy

This week Free Download Friday focuses on working SMARTER when it comes to genealogy research. Does this scenario sound familiar?

Each month, I perform a search on Google using my surnames, ancestral locations and more to find NEW STUFF that I might have missed or was added in the past month. This is time consuming because I have to review EVERYTHING, even what I think I’ve already found.

Well there is a BETTER WAY . . . Google Alerts! Think of it this way: Google Alerts is a preset search based on specific keywords and criteria. It is a notification system, so when new items related to your search are added to Google, you receive an email with the specific items to be reviewed!
