There have been a number of queries recently seeking information about
people, places and strange items. Perhaps a few genners are unaware of
search engines such as Google (www.google.com), Yahoo, Jeeves etc. Most
recently a question on a special challah yielded 51 entries in Google many
with perfect answers. Often a moderator directs a genner to the JewishGen
databanks for a town or surname.
If any genner needs a more detailed description of how to use a search
engine, please email me privately. May I also remind those trying to
research in the UK that I have a detailed article on the various resources
available. Again, please email me for a copy.
