Boston: Advanced Googling, June 14

Lesser-known Google features that go beyond Web searches is the topic at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston (JGSGB), on Sunday June 14.

Michael Marx is the speaker at the program, which begins at 1.30pm at Temple Emanuel, Newton Center.

Previously, Marx presented advanced search techniques offering more relevant and more efficient searches. He will continue the theme with other features and tools to aid genealogy research.

This program will include finding photographs and images of ancestral towns, obtaining maps of geographical locations, connecting with other researchers, finding research material to download, and new tools and finding aids being worked on by Google Labs.

He has been researching his German roots since 2001 and has been able to go back to the mid-1600s. Much of his success is related to Internet searching and his primary tool has been Google.

The meeting will also include election of officers for the coming year.
Fee: JGSGB members, free; others, $5. For more information, click here.
