I’ve starting to gather information for my genealogy research, and the process just got made easier with One-Step Web Pages by Stephen P. Morse. An excellent explanation on how to make use of these web pages is found at Eastman’s Genealogy Newsletter in Using Steve Morse’s One Step Portal for Geneaology Research.
I’ve been poking around the various online genealogy databases with great delight and frustration. As web pages become friendlier to use, it is getting easier to track down information and find things, but it can also be very time consuming and frustrating. Sometimes there is too much information and other times, there is way too little and I don’t know where to turn next.
According to Eastman’s Genealogy Newsletter:
Stephen Morse has found better ways of searching large genealogy databases. His “One-Step Portal” offers many search capabilities not found in the usual offerings from Ancestry.com, RootsWeb, the Ellis Island online database, or the Social Security Death Indexes. The “One-Step Portal” does not have its own databases. Instead, it performs better and more efficient searches of other databases than what the original database providers provide.
The One-Step Search Portal is amazing and a very handy tool for your genealogy research. I’m looking forward to spending some time with it to help expand my family history charts back even further.
