This is the most comprehensive book I've seen for researching your family on the internet. I have learned many new ways to extend the knowledge about my families by using the tips and instructions on using Google. Anyone who uses the internet for family or other research should have this book. All libraries should own this book for their patrons to use as everyone will benefit from the knowledge Mr. Lynch shares on how to use Google. So glad I bought the book. It's also very user friendly and easy to use the techniques of researching on Google. Thank you Mr. Lynch!

Daniel Lynch has provided a critical tool for all Genealogists (or other internet searchers) that will help them find useful information by using simple algorithm related commands, such as, "..." , *, + -, ~ and syntax manipulation, etc. to find that nugget of information you desire. I recommend this book highly, it is a great investment.

Discover all the powers of Google, the world's leading search engine, with this book Google Your Family Tree. This is a "Bible" for those doing family research. All the little tricks to searching for just what you want are given. Nicely illustrated and easy to follow, researching takes on a new dynamics with this reference book. I attended a genealogy workshop and the presenter was using this book and showed us just a few of the hints. She had used it so much, she had worn out the binding and had it rebound with a wire binding so she could lay it flat.

The book is designed to be an active workbook so the reader/researcher can refer to it on a regular basis. There is room for notes, and suggestions, and instructions with real-world examples. There are screen shots to visually support the text. "Google It" draws your attention to try the technique being described.

Web addresses and top free websites for genealogy research are given. It also explains Google text translator for those researching in different countries in their ancestors homeland. There are Appendix A--E at the back with special helping suggestions. Vintage photos add charm to the book. There is an index to help the reader/researcher locate information. A must have for all families digging into their past.

This book advertised to be a genealogical book when if fact it was aqlmost totally devoted to explaining how to use Google. While the book was somewhat helpful as far as google goes, the amount of information provided regarding genealogy was only a thimble half full which the most novice of genealogy dabblers already knows.

I love the book and have shared it with friends who are also interested in genealogy. This books gives some great insights, tips and how-to's on using Google to search for family history. Even the website gave many good tips and search criteria when looking for names and locations that are hard to find.
It's a great book to add to anyone's library that has an interest in family history and genealogy.

Somewhat disappointing - it does have some basic information, however, it is not worth the price and time to read.
