Why can´t I find my ancestor´s with a search engine?

Search and Re-Search!

Search engine indexes are always being updated. If you've queried a search engine about a certain ancestor or family in the past and come up empty-handed, don't stop trying!

Make a note each time you utilize a particular search engine for query about one of your ancestors. Then, try back in a few weeks or a month. Many new resources will have been indexed or "spidered," and you may find a new connection!
