The Internet is one of the greatest resources for genealogical research.
Thousands of people who are researching their family interest exchange
information this way every day. In fact, the genealogy newsgroups are
among the most active Usenet newsgroups in existance. Some of the most
popular genealogy newsgroups are:
However, it is a tedious and time-consuming task to search through
thousands of messages posted to genealogy newsgroups to find ones
relavent to your interests.
News Rover is the ideal tool for scanning the genealogy newsgroups
and fetching only messages of interest to you. Because News Rover
allows you to specify complex message
selection expressions with AND, OR,
NEAR and NOT operators, you can pick up messages that meet very
exacting criteria. For example, if you are looking for information
about the Haines family that settled in Maine, you could specify the
Haines and Maine
Let's say that you are looking for information about the
Haines family from Maine, and you know that the immigrating member
of the family was Samuel Haines who arrived on a ship named the
"Angel Gabriel". In that case, you might use this search expression:
(Haines and Maine) or (Samuel Haines near Angel Gabriel)
Perhaps you are also researching the Phillips family that immigrated
to South Carolina from England. In that case you could add an entry
for that family:
(Haines and Maine) or (Samuel Haines near Angel Gabriel) or
(Phillips and South Carolina) or (Phillips and England)
