Additional Information: 

  • The site owner has posted a notice to say that the site is no longer searchable [last checked 1 April 2015].
  • You might like to try the following work-around. As in many genealogical problems, this works better if the surname is not a common one:
    • Visit the Google search page.
    • Type the surname and the word site followed by a colon and the URL of the site.
    • For example, if you are looking for the BARNFATHER family on the Ontario Vital Statistics Project website, type:

barnfather site:homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~maryc/

  • The Google results will include all instances of the name BARNFATHER on that site.
  • Tip: to locate the name quickly on the results page:
    • Type Ctl + f (that is, hold down the Control key and type the letter f at the same time.)
    • A "find" window will open.
    • Type your search term (e.g. barnfather) into the find window.
    • The computer will jump to the first instance of that word on the page.
    • Don't forget that there may be more than one instance of the word on that page.
    • Look for the text that says, for example, 1 of 3 matches.
    • Click the up or down arrow to jump to the other matches.
  • Another tip: these strategies can be used on most websites; not just Rootsweb.
