Relatively Curious Tool Bar

DearREADERS,
Meeting once again with genealogy friends in Second Life last evening, Ol' Myrt here was reminded of a great free resource for online family history researchers.

Relatively Curious Tool Bar
http://relativelycurious.ourtoolbar.com

(Available for the Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers.)

The Relatively Curious Tool Bar for genealogists.

I installed the tool bar on my FireFox within a matter of seconds, though it did require restarting my web browser, taking another second or two. The tool bar appears with the label "Internet Genealogy" (highlighted with the red rectangle above). One may type in the search box to the immediate right and click "Go". Otherwise, use some of the preselected sites in the tool bar. In this illustration, I've clicked "Resources" then selected "Help & How To" (circled above) and received the suggestion on the far right, also circled in red.

Relatively Curious toolbar creator Tami Glatz has come up with a great tool for genealogy researchers who don't know where to look next on the information super-highway. BRAVO!

Tami is very active, speaking at genealogy conferences throughout the US. She also serves as President of the Second Life Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists and writes a genealogy blog titled Relatively Curious.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.

  1. Looks great. But what about those of us who are using Chrome as our preferred browser?
