    Please keep it coming! Often my geographic areas of interest are different, but the tips are useful (and humorous – thank you!) in suggesting approaches I’ve not considered. Also it’s reassuring to be reminded I’m not the only soul addicted to family searching and faced with seemingly insurmountable brick walls.

    Yes, it’s useful. Often, it is the first place I learn of a new resource that is available within one of the large genealogy services.

    Thank you for Search tips! I find references here I probably would never find on my own. Useful? You bet!

    I read all three of your blogs regularly. I get digest updates whenever a blog I follow has a new post. Really enjoy them all.

    Don’t usually find much to use on the Genealogy Search Tip, but today’s Texas General Land Office index and was a real find. Like most genie searching, you have to “turn over a lot of rocks.”

      Usually these are things on FamilySearch or things that I’ve personally used. Because of that, it reflects my own personal biases, etc. I just hate it when sites mention things that the writer has not used or hasn’t even taken a look at–so things I’ve not used aren’t mentioned here. The only exception is databases that FamilySearch announces as new/updated.

    Thanks for all your work and sharing. If not new I often find reminders- things I may not have tried in a while. I appreciate it.

    Your blog often offers a new tip or aspect of something one simply took for granted. The info you provide inspires us to keep searching. Thanks!

    Yes, I find your blog very useful and informative. I look forward to each post and have used much of the advice and many of the suggestions.

    Thanks for the search tips you provide. Always useful information, and I really like the short, sweet and to the point way it’s shared. It’s my favorite geneology-related email. Great job!

    Yes I do enjoy this blog. Namely since it sometimes lists sites that I hadn’t known about.
