The Best Search

On Sunday I went to the Southern California Genealogy Society Jamboree 2008. It was at the Marriott in Burbank, CA. If you’ve not been to a genealogy conference, I’d highly recommend attending one. The two best reasons to go, from a genealogy standpoint, are that:

1) You learn things that you didn’t know before.

2) You remember things you had forgotten.

The thing that I had forgotten, was the BEST place to do genealogy searches. The absolute best is “One-Step Web Pages” by Stephen P. Morse. You can link to his site here. He just has the best searches around. No question about it. Having trouble searching Ellis Island or Castle Garden? Mr. Morse has the search to help. Having trouble searching Ancestry? Mr. Morse has a search to help. It’s just amazing what he’s done. I highly recommend checking out his site.

FireFox 3.0

So, Firefox 3.0 came out today. I’m a big Firefox user. For those of you who don’t know, Firefox is a browser that can replace, among others, Internet Explorer from your Windows based machine. You can download Firefox 3.0 here.

One of the best things about Firefox is that they have ways of extending the browser to do things that other browsers either cannot do or don’t do well. Currently, I’m typing this post from inside Firefox while connected to a completely different site ( In this case the Mozilla site) The Firefox extension I’m using is called “Deepest Sender“. It’s a blogging client. This means that you don’t have to go directly to your blog to post. You can be anywhere, as long as Firefox is running and post to your blog.

It’s pretty nifty. Please give it a try for yourself
