In addition to synchronizing with FamilySearch, MacFamilyTree also makes it possible to search other online archives with the Web Search feature. It’s easy and amazing. Here’s how . . .
- Click the Web Search button in the toolbar.
- Choose the person record for the person you are searching. Basic data from that person appears in the Search Parameters area. You can change that information if you wish.
- Now select the archive you want to search.
- Click the Find button.
Your results will appear just below the parameters. In this example, WikiTree offered me additional search paramaters so I could expand my search.
I am quite impressed with this feature. I can quickly search for an individual in multiple archives just by changing the site and clicking Find again. Unfortunately, this feature is not included on MobileFamilyTree . . . yet. I’m hoping it will be added soon.
