International Genealogy Search Engines

Our World Vital Records team has launched international genealogy search engines for 11 countries, with 18 more in the pipeline already.

Our intial list includes a search engine for genealogy in China and a search engine for genealogy in India. Other countries include Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Kenya, the Philippines, Tonga, Turkey, and Ukraine.

Also this week, we are uploading 200 electronic back-issues of the famous genealogy magazine, Everton Genealogical Helper. We have indexed more than 10,000 pages dating from 1947-2006. That’s 60 years of content from the magazine that is the most interactive of all genealogical publications. For decades, readers have been writing in their queries, which would get published, and other readers would then connect with each other. The Helper was a genealogy bulletin board before the internet was even invented.

We are currently designing and building the interactive features of our new family history web site. If we can engage the Helper audience in using our new web based tools, then we’ll be able to take interactive genealogy to an entirely new level.
