Mocavo:  A Comparison of the Best (?) Genealogy Search Engine versus Google
Mocavo is a search engine that many people have never heard of. However, it is designed for use by genealogists and often can find information that is buried within thousands of "hits" when searching on Google. This lecture describes Mocavo in some detail, including the new data matching and monitoring for new data features. This lecture will include a live demonstration searching for information suggested by the audience.
