Google Alerts

Thousands of new web sites are created every day. Every once in a while, one of those websites is actually useful to the genealogist. On your lucky days, one of those web sites might contain new information about one of your ancestors. But unless you're "googling" every day, you might miss out on the new site.

Google Alerts is a free service that can alert you to new web sites that match your search terms. For example, if you want to be alerted when a new web site is available about William HAGUE from Yorkshire, you can create a Google Alert that contains those search terms. Then, when Google finds a new site that contains those terms, you'll get an automated email.

One importaint thing you need to remember on alert is the use of limits, ie. plus + not - Quotaion marks "phrase". Otherwise google alert handles each word as OR. I love the results I am getting on this.
