Review of the Advanced Genealogy Search Engine - Day One

computer-2I’ve been interested in checking out the brand new search engine created by the Genealogy In Time online magazine. Their Advanced Genealogy Search Engine is free for anyone who wants to use it. It has been said that it is very easy to use, and it allows you to search over 1.2 billion historic records. Let’s see how well this works for me!

The first thing I learned is that this search engine is compatible with the Safari browser, which is the one I prefer to use. I do use both Mac and PC computers, but I strongly prefer using my Mac. I am very happy to see that The Advanced Genealogy Search Engine is Mac friendly. Not all genealogy websites have been designed to use with Mac computers, or with the Safari browser, or so I have learned in my previous experiences when I reviewed the MyHeritage website.

I learned that there isn’t very much information about the search engine, itself, located on it’s page. In the center of the page sits the search engine, which appears to be powered by Google Custom Search. I can enter whatever I want into the box, and hit the button called Search. Just like that, my genealogy research will begin! To be consistent, I will do exactly what I did when I started using the MyHeritage website. I will tell The Advanced Genealogy Search Engine to search for information and records on me. I will use my first name, Jennifer, and my unmarried surname, Dahlberg.

Instantly, eight pages worth of information appears! That was really quick! I must say, I am impressed. Above the list is a Google ad for something called Dahlberg Info, at That looks interesting! Clicking on the link brings me directly to that website, where my first and surname are already typed into the boxes for me. I add my middle initial to the empty box, and select the state that I was born in from the drop down box.

Three people with the same name as me appear in a chart that lists name, age, some previous cities that the person has lived in, and who some of that person’s relatives are. There are boxes checked if the phone number, address, average income, or average home value is known. One of the names listed shows my correct age, my correctly spelled out middle name, and has identified the names of five of my closest blood relatives. How exciting! I can click a blue box at the end of the chart to “See Details”.

The next page asks me to select the report I would like to receive. Each package requires me to pay a fee. One package is more detailed, and much more expensive, than the other one. I learned that although The Advanced Genealogy Search Engine is free, this doesn’t mean that ad at the top of the list is going to be something that is also free to use. Oh, well. Perhaps I will find something useful as I work my way down the list.
