Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe

Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe: Computer Group Summary - 8/15: "There are so many mailing list (almost 33 million) and message board (over 17 million on Rootsweb) messages, dating from the late 1990's, that many researchers don't even try to search them for other researchers who might have common ancestors. Part of the problem is that there are so many individual lists or boards that the volume is overwhelming. Searching has become much easier and faster since Rootsweb added the search engines. You can put a name in quotes - such as 'isaac seaver' - on the Mailing List Advanced Search box and get good results, but you can't put the name in quotes on the Message Board search - it ignores the quotes."
