Google had just added a customized search tool you can build called Google Co-op. Just for fun, I used that to build a Google GEDCOM search. It took me only about 2 hours and it’s up. For now, I’ve added that to my Genealogy Software Links page and I’ll see what the reaction is.

I’ve always wanted a way to easily find GEDCOMs that have come from specific programs or contain specific constructs in them for testing Behold. Now I can use that tool to easily search the 15,000 or so GEDCOMs that Google has indexed.

It’s not perfect, though. It doesn’t show you how many results there are in total. If you enter a surname like “Smith” into it, only the first 30 results show. And the searching does not have all the features that a full Google search has.
