Open Access to Global Search on Through Sunday! has been adding databases at the rate of 1,000 per day for the past few months.  That's phenomenal, and it's difficult to find what's there - you really can only do it through searching all records for your persons in a locality.

Cliff Shaw just posted Open Access to Global Search Until Sunday at Midnight on the Mocavo genealogy blog for everybody with a Basic (free) Mocavo account.  Usually, the Global Search is available only for Gold Members.  

Mocavo has many large databases, but has more really small databases available that are not available on any other genealogy website.  You never know what you're going to find in small databases - perhaps you'll solve a research problem in a resource that you didn't know existed.  

This is an excellent opportunity for Basic account members - make a list of persons to search for and run through them in a methodical manner.  Use the Advanced Search box to narrow your search with localities or date ranges.  

Opportunities like this are few and far between - go for it!

Well, given the number of databases, I would have thought that I could find at least ONE good hit - but no luck at all!
