What's Inside

The Master Ancestry.com Search eBook features:

  • Tips and strategies for using Ancestry.com's various search tools, including filters and exact searches
  • A guide to finding specific databases to search in Ancestry.com's Card Catalog
  • Practical suggestions for performing difficult searches, such as for female ancestors and relatives with common names

Excerpt: Sample Tips

Here are some tips you'll find in the Master Ancestry.com Search eBook:

  • Use wildcard characters such as the asterisk (*) and the question mark (?) to capture search results that have alternate spellings. These are especially helpful for foreign-language names and place names that are misspelled in records and indexes, as each wildcard character replaces a letter (or letters) in search results. For example, searching for Hendricks?n would capture both Hendrickson and Hendricksin.
  • Consider searching all Ancestry.com's record collections, even those that don't have traditional records. Collections of ancestor stories, historical photos, and published histories can provide insightful information about how your ancestors lived.

The Master Ancestry.com Search eBook comes in PDF format and can be printed out or viewed on your tablet, laptop, or desktop computer for easy reference while working with your family memories.
