When I clicked on the FamilySearch link I received matches only on the classical FamilySearch results (Ancestral file, IGI, Pedigree Resource File, 1880 US, 1881 Canada and 1881 UK), not for the FamilySearch Record Search where all of the new imaged and indexed databases are going. Can I add that site, and others, to the RootsMagic WebSearch list?
RootsMagic 4 allows the user to add other Search providers to the WebSearch capability, On the screen below, I have opened the list of Search providers and at the bottom of the list is "Manage Search Providers..."
I clicked on the link for "Manage Search Providers" and noted that there were two tabs on the popup window - "Standard Search Providers" and "Custom Search Providers." I clicked on "Custom Search Providers" and it was empty:
I decided to add FamilySearch Record Search to the list, so I clicked on the "Add" button to the right of the empty box, and saw:
I clicked "Search" and the results showed up on the screen below:
I highlighted the URL in the address line, copied it using Ctrl-C, and went back to the RootsMagic WebSearch screen and entered it into the box titled "Search Results URL"
Then I clicked on "OK" and the FamilySearch Record Search item was added to my "Custom Search Provider" list:
I clicked "OK" here, and noted that "FamilySearch Record Search" was added to the dropdown WebSearch provider menu:
All good so far! That was pretty easy. I can see what RootsMagic is doing here - the URL for the search for John Doe and 1700-1800 can be modified by changing the given name, surname, birth year and death year of the target person in RootsMagic - the system should put my "Frank Walton" in place of "John," should put "Seaver" in place of "Doe," and the years "1852" and "1922" in place of "1700" and "1800" in the search query.
