Search the web's top search engines with one search.

A meta search engine is a search tool that sends user queries to several search engines at once and aggregates the results into a single list.

Why not just use Google? Don't all search engines have the same results? Well, many times Google's algorithm may rank a website lower than the other search engines making it harder to find that website. A meta search engine may help you find better results as the best of all search engines will rank in the top results of a meta search result.

Search Engines very in the use of Boolean search operators, so it is best to enter simple search queries.

Caution: Meta search engines also interweave a lot of "sponsored results", also known as paid ads, among the results. Watch that you are looking at actual "web results" and not "paid results".

Hint: To find a surname on a genealogy related website:
  • Search for your surname with the word genealogy or "family history"
  • Search for your surname with the name of the hometown
