Customer Service Corner: Searching in Genealogy Browser
By Jesse Bingham, Customer Service Representative
One of the major benefits of OneGreatFamily is that we search for your ancestors to save you time. Yet, there may be times when you may want to do some searching of your own. Did you know that you can search for your ancestors while you are working in Genealogy Browser?
In Genealogy Browser, click on the "Search" button ( the icon with the pair of glasses) located under the menu:
On the right hand side of your screen the Search view will appear:
Enter the names you're looking for, then select one of the two buttons above the primary name box to search within OneGreatFamily (Search OGF) or to search other sites on the web (Search Web).
Clicking on the "Search OGF" icon will search for the name specifications in the OneGreatFamily database only while clicking on the "Search Web" icon will allow you to specify a few websites to search. These search results will pop up in another window once the results are compiled.
Please note that some of the sites we link to require a subscription if you do not already have one, others are free of charge.
