The Genealogist’s Google Toolbox, by Lisa Louise Cooke; 2011, Soft Cover; 209 pp; 8.5x11; ISBN: 978-1-4583-0155-0; Item #Lu01

This book on using Google for genealogy is an excellent volume. Lisa is known for her Genealogy Gems podcast website, and had become a popular speaker on the lecture circuit during the last couple of years. She lectured on using Google Earth at RootsTech, which was very well received.

This is a great guidebook, in that it’s heavily illustrated and geared toward showing the genealogist how to use many of the free online “tools” that Google has made available to us.

The use of the “tools” is laid out in a step-by-step manner that anyone can follow. The first 5 chapters all deal with Google’s Search abilities, followed by chapters on Google Alerts, Gmail, iGoogle, Books, News Timeline, Translation, YouTube & Video, Google Earth (in all its glory!), Family History Tour Maps, and an amazing “How to” index at the back.

Following is a list of the chapters found in the volume:

  • Introduction
  • Chapter 1: Caffeine & Search Options Column
  • Chapter 2: Basic & Advanced Search
  • Chapter 3: Search Strategies for High-Quality Results
  • Chapter 4: Site Search & Resurrecting Web Sites
  • Chapter 5: Image Search
  • Chapter 6: Google Alerts
  • Chapter 7: Gmail
  • Chapter 8: iGoogle – Your Personal Genealogy Home Page
  • Chapter 9: Google Books
  • Chapter 10: Google News Timeline
  • Chapter 11: Google Translate & Translation Toolkit
  • Chapter 12: YouTube & Google Video
  • Chapter 13: Google Earth Overview
  • Chapter 14: Google Earth – Ancestral Homes & Locations
  • Chapter 15: Google Earth - Organizing, Naming & Sharing
  • Chapter 16: Google Earth – Historic Maps & Images
  • Chapter 17: Google Earth – Plotting Your Ancestor’s Homestead
  • Chapter 18: Google Earth – Fun with Images & Video
  • Chapter 19: Family History Tour Maps
  • Chapter 20: Find it Quick: The “How To” Index

I like the guidebook, and recommend it to anyone who wants to get more use of the online “tools” available to them.
