Have you ever set up a Google Alert for your family names, ancestral towns and key words you may be researching?  I use this tool everyday and many of the postings I create are a result of one of the Google Alerts.  Now, Google Alert  has an new search: Ancestor Search on Google Search. 


How does that differ from an ordinary Google search alert? I read the pages you link to but didn't see any explanation. When I tried using the tool, I just got a regular Google search, not one limited to ancestry resources or otherwise restricted.
