    I have heard about the Google alerts but have never used them. How do you go about setting the alert?

    I’m at that point in my trees at Ancestry where every person has a shaky leaf. Although I do check the hints when I’m working on someone in particular they are no longer a queue for me to check out someone I’ve not touched in awhile.

    I’ve just started setting up Google Alerts for a couple of brickwall, active-research ancestors. So far though I’ve been inundated with false/contemporary hits so I need to work on fine tuning those alters.

    Ebay…Godsend! I use the alerts so I don’t miss coin auctions for one of my ancestor’s Civil War Tokens. Trying to scoop up the good ones as fast as I can afford them!

    You might try Googleing ‘how to set a Google Alert.’
