52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 27
Put your thinking cap on and visit Google Scholar. It’s difficult to browse the features of this tool, so bring some surnames to use in your test searches. Also check out Google Scholar Preferences and Advanced Scholar Search. Search some of your more common ancestor names and manipulate the search preferences to see the difference in the results you get. You may also try your unusual surnames. What did you find? Genealogy blog authors can answer this question on their blogs.
This challenge runs from Saturday, 3 July 2010 through Friday, 9 July 2010.
