Google is a wonderful invention for genealogists and all other Internet users. The world's most popular search engine is capable of finding specialized information about most anything imaginable. However, many users do not know much about ll the options available when using Google's most powerful search tools.
Many of us only know how to enter a query into Google's Search Box. Such a search can find all sorts of information, often overwhelming you with too many "hits."
For instance, I often search for French-Canadian genealogy information. Going to www.Google.com and entering a search for "French-Canadian genealogy" produces more than a half million "hits." Clearly, there has to be a better way. In fact, I will describe two ways: one is a bit difficult to remember, but the other is super simple. I will describe the more difficult method first as it provides background knowledge. Once you understand the difficult method, the simple method will make more sense.
