A reader sent me a message describing this powerful and well focused, genealogy search engine. It is both powerful and accurate; and, “for now” it is absolutely free! (I guess we should not truly trust that things will stay that way…)
The Mocavo site is not very old having started on 16 March 2011. But the access it provides to genealogy resources seems quite immense. They have even indexed the ManyRoads site! I guess we are a bit more famous because of them and now we’ll return the favor.
To quote the Mocavo blog::
The world’s largest free search engine just got bigger! We’re announcing the addition of thousands of new sites today. The new content added to Mocavo.com includes more than 3,000 genealogy blogs and thousands of sites submitted by users over the past month.
As the Mocavo search engine says:
Mocavo.com, provides genealogists access to the best free genealogy content on the web including billions of names, dates and places worldwide. Mocavo.com seeks to index and make searchable all of the world’s free genealogy information. While Mocavo.com discovers new sites every day, some of the existing sites searchable on Mocavo.com include genealogy message boards, family trees, state and local historical societies, the Library of Congress, National Archives, Ellis Island, Find A Grave, the Internet Archive, various U.S. state archives, and many tens of thousands of genealogy sites built by individuals. Similar to other search engines, Mocavo.com honors site owners by linking directly to their content.
If you haven’t already you might want to give them a go: visit the Mocavo search engine.
