Posted by admin on May 21, 2008

A new Web site makes it easier to monitor the Internet for your hard-to-find ancestors. The GenealogyAgent Web site has GenealogyAgents that use the details that you provide about your ancestor (birth, death, parents, siblings, etc.). The GenealogyAgents then act on your behalf to regularly check for changes related to those details on the Internet.

“If you are tired of repeatedly checking the same Web sites or conducting the same searches only to find the information for an ancestor has not changed, we can help,” according to Doug Barry, the site’s Webmaster. “It is not much fun when you keep hitting a brick wall while trying to find new information. Our GenealogyAgents are designed to help you monitor Web sites and conduct multiple genealogy site searches for any changes related to your ‘brick-wall’ ancestors.”

As an introductory offer, you can have the GenealogyAgents at monitor the Internet for two ancestors for one year at no cost to you.

“The site is the latest in a series of sites that I have created as I progressed in my own genealogical research,” noted Doug Barry. “I am now at the point of having ‘brick-wall’ ancestors. It becomes tedious to keep searching the Internet when you might find something new a few times in a year. So, I wrote this site to help me catch those new details and I am sure it can help others.”
