 Topic:  Randy's Top Ten Genealogy Search Tips

Every genealogy record provider has a different set of search fields and formats for their collections, and users must consider their strategy for using them effectively. 

After a review of the major online record providers, Randy provides ten tips for getting the most out of your searches on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FamilySearch, and several other providers.
