Everyone knows Google as the most used search engine in the world, but for genealogists it can do so much more to further their family history research.

Finding an image of the ship on which your ancestor went to war, using Street view to walk the streets of your ancestral area, translating that document, finding that distant cousin who has the photos of family bible, mapping their migration path - these are just some of the ways you can use Google in your family history.
